Dorcas is a graduate from Winchester Art College. She uses a variety of materials including fabric, wire and found objects to create her at times startlingly realistic and unsettling portrayals of animals and birds.
Inspired by an exploration of her dreams, Dorcas Casey is displaying one of her life-sized, hand-stitched animals; a stuffed-fabric pig seated on a Victorian chair.

Dorcas says, “I intend the pig to appear simultaneously familiar, tactile and comforting and conversely grotesque and menacing.”
