Description Original photo and digital additives (initials on the lower right side and very light watercolor effect) by CRS.Phalaenopsis is a genus of approximately 60 species of orchids (family Orchidaceae). The abbreviation in the horticultural trade is Phal.The generic name originates from the Greek phalaina, "moth" and opsis, "like", descriptive of the inflorescences of some species, which resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.
Cassie Schilliger, San Marcos, Ca Member Since August 2006 Artist Statement CRS (Cassandra Rene Schilliger), me. I was born in September of 1979 down in Point Loma, CA (right next to Ocean Beach in San Diego) to my dad Bruce and my mom Jeannie. I've lived in quite a few places but mostly in San Diego county. Started out in Ocean Beach, moved to Idylwild and then down the mountain to Hemet... went from there to Oak Park, to La Mesa and up to Vista... I've lived in North Park and a short while in National City... I also went to Florida for a short period of time (if you can consider Pensacola part of FL. hehe) and about six months in Loveland, CO. Now I'm living in San Marcos (CA, not TX). I've had many reptile pets in the past few years and I really prefer them, fish and aquatic things like fiddler crabs. hehe I love taking photos and I enjoy attempting to do other art like watercolor. Also, I'm a total music addict :)
