Cassie’s current body of work explores the unspoken and taboo topics connected to life as a woman. Whether it be inspired by miscarriage, breastfeeding or the transformative female form, her art encourages all people to engage in an open and unashamed dialogue. By using traditional fiber techniques like knitting, her hope is to change the cultural narrative of “women’s work.”

Stitch by stitch, Cassie challenges the stereotypes surrounding females, their bodies, their work, their capabilities, and their lives. The Mom Bra series is a rejection of the unrealistic portrayal of the female form in today’s media. Mom Bras seek to celebrate the unique qualities found in all women regardless of size, shape, or colour.
