My name is Carissa Casiello, and I have loved art for as long as I can remember.  I love to draw, design and create new things.  I find inspiration in many aspects of my life, and enjoy the challenge to create designs that are inspired by my surroundings.


In addition to graphic arts and illustration, I love charcoal, graphite drawing and multi-medium painting.  There is nothing quite like taking time to truly work with your hands on something, watching and creating it to its final form.  Some of the work I have done in these mediums are also in my portfolio - feel free to check them out!


I would be remiss to leave out that since art comes in so many forms, one of my other passions is playing my viola.  I have been playing the viola since I was little, and always wanted it to be a long term part of my life.  I have been very lucky to find a local symphony to play in, and for a great group of people to surround myself with.  Just in case you were wondering,  my viola's name is Luciano.




My Background


I started working in design in 2003, where I worked along side a fashion designer doing presentation layouts for her garment designs.  I always enjoyed working on them, and didn't realize my true passion until more recently.


In 2007, I took a job in accounting, and not very long after, in 2010, I was offered the opportunity to join the marketing team, which I felt was a much more interesting and exciting facet of the business.  Shortly after taking the opportunity in my new marketing position, I decided to start working on graphic design.  There was a need to create relevant, and original design so I presented my ideas and graphics, and quickly became the sole designer at the company.


I spent a significant portion of my job creating images and layouts for their website, marketing collateral, power-point & keynote presentations and brand designs.


In early 2015, I left my marketing position to fully dedicate myself to my own goals and my company.  I definitely loved what I did, but wanted to take a leap of faith and take a chance on me; I haven't looked back since!



I truly love illustration & design, it is a passion.  I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to now do what I love, for my customers and also for myself.  Creating original artwork is one of my absolute favorite things.


Thank you for taking the time to get to know the VISIVAE story.  I hope to further connect with you to create something that will be both original and relevant to you!
