About the Work:

Cassandra’s fondest memories of her visits to South Carolina moved her to paint these visions of The Low country’s comforting southern culture. From her youth, she dreamt of one day returning to the place that won her heart and spirit, and upon her return, became closely connected with her people and culture she so loved. Cassandra’s paintings show that love with vivid colors of the southern seasons and images of good old southern living.
