While it’s still early days for the young artist, Cassie has already established a big fan group on Instagram, where she has more than 8,000 followers.
She has sold about 300 paintings, which now adorn the walls of homes in Australia and overseas, but whether she walks down the artist path when she grows up is uncertain.
“She once said she wanted to be a doctor, but then she wanted to be an artist, then teacher … then it was a builder,” laughs Linda.
“I just know she’s a very giving and nurturing kind of person.”
Linda hopes Cassie’s effort will encourage other people to do what they can to help vulnerable children.
“Being mindful of other people and giving back, I think, is something you always need to bear in mind when you’re working and living life,” Linda says.
