Lene Alston Casey is an American artist who specializes in oil painting. She began her painting back in 1989 as a hobby, but has since transformed it into a career from which she earns her living. Her love for painting developed over time, expanding her skills through practical experience and research on oil painting. She studied painting during summer through which she met Egidio Antonaccio, a renowned painter who further inspired her. Casey’s works display her love for gardening since most of them capture beautiful gardens with beautiful fountains, plants, and water bodies. There is something about Casey that so many people admire; and that's her artistic ability to realistically display details and light effects such as shadows and reflections. She has enhanced her skills over the years and has brushed shoulders with renowned realist landscapists in the US state of North Carolina, including Edward Szmyd.
