Nell is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in textiles, illustration, woodworking, and mixed media sculpture. In recent years, she has created numerous immersive installations and interactive works that aim to surprise and delight viewers of all ages. Nell's installations have been a part of The Firelight Lantern Festival in Prince Edward County and her illustrations have been used in advertising and for several bands and musicians across Canada.
"The imagery I employ is often fanciful; I am drawn to themes found in pop culture, fast food, advertising, cartoons, and I have a recurring motif of human-like animals. My goal is to creat work that will enlighten and entertain people through memorable interactions, and to give unexpected artistic experiences to my community" - Nell Casson
