Casimira is a well established Oxfordshire artist living in Bicester and has been painting her colourful quirky artwork for over 10 years. She has been extremely fortunate to have found lots of locations locally to sell her artwork be it Coffee shops such as S and H coffee shop and gifts in Bicester and now at Matildas at Fringford where she sells her greeting cards, Tea rooms such as Annies Tearooms in Thrupp and Abingdon, The Art Cafe in Oxford and the Artyard Cafe in Enstone. She also sells her artwork at her mother's dentist in Oxford. She has had an amazing opportunity to sell her gift items such as Oxford High and other cushion covers as well as glass chopping boards, coasters, scarves and tote bags etc at the Crafters Emporium on the High in Oxford and they are now coming to Bicester so she will be selling her gifts there too for at least 3 months this year next to where she will displaying her original artwork for Oxfordshire Artweeks in May in Sheep Street Bicester. Last year Casimira was asked to paint a piano for Bicester Festival and the theme was Sea/ See Change. Although anxious about the prospect of the responsibility of having to paint a whole piano in a few weeks Casimira took the challenge on board and painted fun and quirky scenes on the piano, a large tree of life with birds, great big waves with the owl and the pussy cat, and a calm sea with dolphins as well as colourful quirky houses by the sea. The piano has been an amazing success and it is still possible to come and play it as it is outside under an awning at the Ex Servicemens Club in Pioneer Square Bicester. Charlie Ross from Bargain hunt came to do the grand opening which was super exciting for Casimira as she is one of his greatest fans!!. After a couple of months the piano got vandalized and at that point the Oxford Mail and Bicester Advertizer soon became interested in doing a story. However David whose idea it was always the optimist soon repaired the lid and it was up and running again in no time. So this is my story thus far. My artwork over the years has developped and the creative juices keep flowing. In November 2021 Bicester Artnetwork had the most amazing opportunity to display and sell our artwork in one of our large retail shops in our main street in Bicester. I was able to display and sell my original paintings as well as all my gift items and it was a huge success and now we are fortunate again to have another amazing opportunity in the same street for Oxfordshire Artweeks in May. Can't wait to see you then. I am happy to undertake commissions www.casimirasquirkyart.com
