Mia DelCasino a San Diego based artist was born in New York and raised in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Upon finishing her degree in Media Communications, she moved to Southern California to pursue a career as a professional artist.
Photography is DelCasino's chosen medium for creative expression allowing her to portray reality as she sees it and to pass the experience of her vision to others. Each piece is its own gateway to inner peace, self-awareness and introspection. DelCasino finds herself searching for the peace and calm aspect of every life experience no matter how large or small. Her belief is that it exists in a mindset rather than just a physical place. Her work illustrates the mindset, and portrays the calm and beauty that she believes can exist anywhere.
Her work can be found in many corporate and private collections across the United States.
