Primarily a self- taught artist, Casey explores her experiences through the engaging and often unpredictable print medium of monoprinting. She is most interested in the spiritual aspects that emerge in the image, particularly relating to how we live in the world and how the world lives in us. In the beginning the work may be a search for answers, but in the end it’s more about being here without them.
Creating a monotype or monoprint is a process using moistened paper with oil paint and/or etching inks. Working with a press and printing plate, an additive or subtractive method is often used with multiple layers of images to create an individual work. Casey often works on a theme which becomes a 10 to 15-piece collection. Each work is on archival 100% rag paper and is one of a kind.
Casey's artwork is found in the permanent collections of UVM Medical Center, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and Boston Children’s Hospital. Her artwork is also in many hotels nationwide, private collections, web designs, and various published materials.
Casey Blanchard was born in Greenwich, CT in 1953. She lives in Shelburne, VT with her husband, Dan Cox.
