Artist Intro - Cason Rankin
Asheville, North Carolina
Cason moved to Asheville, NC from Florida two years ago to open a full-time studio/gallery in the River Arts District at NorthLight Studios.
She creates paintings of figures and faces. This can be either people or wildlife. The emotional impact of a portrait is just as essential as the image. “The painting is exactly right when it’s as if the essence of that person or animal actually enters the room.” say Cason. It’s very important for her to convey the intensity of what the person or animal is feeling in a single moment in time.
Cason is represented in North Carolina by 7 Sisters Gallery in Black Mountain, Seasons Gallery at the Grove Park Inn & Cindy Saadeh Gallery in Kingsport TN.
