Cassandra Schramm is a San Diego based painter, muralist, and art instructor. She utilizes mixed media, but widely uses acrylic paint, and colored pencil. In her work she is interested in the rich symbolism of eyes and faces as subject matter. Cassandra is fascinated with the diverse, cultural, and spiritual meanings connected to the image of the eye. Her paintings deal with the vulnerability of perceptual relationships in our relative connection with the outside world. Her painterly eyes are metaphoric portraits that convey various human characteristics, such as emotion, pain, happiness, consciousness, and of the soul.
Cassandra received her BFA in Studio Art from the University of Massachusetts Boston. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows all over San Diego and Boston. Her exhibition history includes a solo show at Hype Gallery in October, 2017, "Controlled Chaos" at Take Me Home Gallery, "Perfect 10" and "Frida Kahlo" group shows at La Bodega Gallery, "Small Wonders" group show at Thumbprint Gallery, and "Getting There" solo exhibition at Savin Gallery in Boston.
