Cassielelolea is a self-taught artist who began her artistic journey from body movements as a ballet dancer. A Mass Communication graduate major in Advertising, her love for visual arts and design was fostered over the years from multiple roles throughout her career involving graphics and product designs to handmade wearable pieces. A six-months working holiday in New Zealand has broadened her perspective in executing work of arts in various ways.
In 2016, she started juggling between a full time job and her role as a mural artist and freelance painter, until she decided to quit her job and focus on her painting in early 2020.
Cassielelolea’s artwork continually evolves with her moods, her experiences and it is a learning curve which she meanders through everyday. Cassie has exhibited her works in numerous exhibitions in Malaysia and has been awarded “Most Imaginative Artwork” at the Art Salon 2018.
"Cassielelolea’s work exhibits a certain dreaminess melded with an ethereal reality, very much inspired by living creatures, as she finds them mystical, vibrantly alive, and their diverse expressions and forms fuel her passion."
