The Blue Vase

Cassandra Ronning has studied painting for over a decade, graduating in 2012 with her BFA from the University of Missouri St. Louis. After university, she showed work throughout the Midwest, participated in live art events, and volunteered at The St. Louis Artist Guild. In 2018 she moved to Minneapolis to undertake the full-time program at The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Arts. She was awarded a scholarship from Oil Painters of America during her time studying with the school. Upon completion of the four-year program, she moved to a studio to continue still-life and figural work. With a mix of traditional and non-traditional instruction, her view on painting is colorful and expressive. She emphasizes putting paint on the canvas and enjoying time spent in front of the easel.
