About the Artist:

Iris enjoys making wire “speak” a different language. From being used as something to hold fences together, send electrical currents or act as structural arms, she turns wire into creatures such as birds, cats and dragonflies and infuses them with personality and whimsey.

Mosaics, her second medium of choice, are challenges in line, colour, movement and pattern. From tile to stained glass to metal pieces and found objects come creations that emote and tease.

Iris is a Northern Ontario girl. Born in Sturgeon Falls, daughter of a post-Group of Seven artist (Lorraine Franklin Casey – Frank Casey), she grew up with art all around her. She moved to Southern Ontario where she attended Toronto Teachers’ College and Wilfrid Laurier University, married, had a teaching career and with her husband, children and dogs, lived in Hockley Valley for 30 years.

She moved to the County in 2012, to be close to the water to kayak and to be immersed in an artistic community where she is participating in various shows, artistic groups and galleries.
