The Art of Kasey Tararuj

Art made to deal with and express life with a disability.

Kasey Tararuj is a NJ-based artist who experienced a traumatizing moment in her early teenage years when an unexpected AVM on her spinal cord suddenly took away the use of her legs.  Through this experience, she found her passion for art both life changing and life saving.  Over a decade of creating dark and emotional art on a highly therapeutic level has led Kasey to her current body of work featuring more playful subjects.  Because sometimes we just need a little more light in our lives.  Primarily focusing on custom vinyl toys and original sculpts, she uses humor and emotion to create spirited characters, each with their own unique personalities. She feeds off her own amusements, hunger, boredom, or defeat to create work intended for giggles, for others to relate to, and simply for the sake of creating something fun.
