Cassie Swanson began her artistic life at a watercolour workshop run by Rex Bacchus-Smith in Quilpie in 1985. She was immediately hooked.
Two of her children had left home for boarding school and she was living on a beautiful but isolated property between Yaraka and Quilpie.
Her art is focused on the simple pleasures of life - landscapes, flowers and children. She likes to portray the softer side of life in the bush.
Cassie has recently begun experimenting and working with acrylics and is finding it to be fun experience. At theoutbackgallery.com we find it a visually and texturally brilliant experience.
The cattle property "Bex Hill" north west of Tambo is now home for Cassie and her husband Geoff.
Her studio on the property has wide sweeping views of the property and she finds endless material by just looking out the window.
She has exhibited in various galleries and museums in western Queensland as well as Brisbane and Toowoomba.
In her spare time she is involved with Tambo's wonderful Grassland Gallery.
