Born in Warwick, New York, Casey earned their BFA from SUNY Purchase in 2022. Living in the same town for their whole life their work has become motivated by microhistories of people and the spaces they inhabit, specifically family. The most recent project The Ordinary Instant tunes in on the caretaking in a women dominating family during a time of grief.

Casey’s work has been shown in various galleries alongside their peer’s work in the Dolly Maas gallery, as well as solo exhibits such as the one in Albert Wisner Public Library and the Forum Art Space at SUNY Purchase.
