Based in Sydney, Australia, Cassie has been a “professional artist” since the age of three. She uses a combination of acrylic paint, resin and glitter to create amazing, galaxy-esque landscapes like these:

When you do a big painting and it rains. Time for the industrial lighting to dry things up!

Her technique is to drip paint on canvas, and then use forks or skewers to twist the acrylic and resin paint into swirling patterns. Often, she’ll add glitter or glow-in-the-dark pigments.

Cassie and her mom sell her paintings through her Etsy store and on her website. The site states that Cassie has donated money to charities to help the blind, cancer patients, children in Cambodia, war victims in Syria and more. So, not only does Cassie’s paint get spread around, her love does, too.
