About Bethany Caskey
Bethany graduated from college with a B.A. in Art and Experimental Curriculum. After graduating, she had several illustration and design assignments in various mid-western communities that encompassed medical illustration, childrens' illustrations, animation, clip art and product graphics. She also created traditional works of the fine art and was the recipient of several wildlife stamp and print awards.
Through her work she tries to achieve focus, clarity and understanding for complex problems using simple visuals and illustrative techniques.
Today she works mostly with Photshop, Painter, SketchBookPro and Illustrator but always relies on her experience using traditional medias. My new "traditional" technique is a blend of old and new - drawn and rendered by hand an painted digitally. Her subject matter includes the natural world, medical, how to projects, science, education, editorial illustrations, logo design, wild and domestic animals, advertising design and branding. Clients past and present include: Storey Publishing, Countryside, Equus, Rural Heritage, Backyard Poultry, Bee Culture, Pheasants Forever, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, American Riding Instructors Association, Westinghouse Learning Corporation, North American Trail Ride Conference, Trail Blazer Magazine, and University of Iowa Hospitals.
She enjoys working on personal projects and learning new techniques and methods from other artists she admires. If she is not working on a project, her own or a client's, she is studying and learning.
Horses are a central focus of her life: training, riding, studying, painting and drawing. She imprinted at an early age on the horses running across the movie and television screens and was lucky enough to move to an area where actually owning horses was possible and near a grandfather that was an enabler. She has traveled cross-country horseback or by horse and wagon several times.
