All About Illustrator Aileen Casey!

Hartford Ct Illustrator Ailleen Casey

A bit about me:

Although I currently live in Connecticut, I’m a Jersey Girl through and through! I have a B.A. in Art from Montclair University, and for the past 20 years I’ve worked as an illustrator, graphic designer, print and direct mail production manager and marketing manager within the financial services and publishing industries in New York City, Philadelphia and Hartford, Connecticut. Whew!

As a young girl, my parents learned quickly that being sent to my room was no punishment for bad behavior - I could spend hours there drawing characters and crafting little stories about their lives. From the time I can remember, I wanted to be an artist and although my entire family excelled at the performing arts, I just wanted to draw.

I love a good book (I read about 5 at the same time); I’m addicted to magazines (have you read Hi Fructose?) and find that although they are not fashionable any more, tube socks are the greatest invention of all time. When I’m not in the studio, I’m hanging out at the Jersey Shore with my family or am in a little town called Gilman, Vermont with my husband Scott, daughter Jade-Su and crazy dog “Lady GG”.
