Cassandra Complex (b. Los Angeles, CA 1976.) is a self-taught artist, who has served in the Army, been an EMT (ambulance driver) and a carny. After Her Father's Death in 2005, she quit her job as an EMT and became a graveyard shift security guard. While working she used whatever was available to paint, including different mediums, as well as different tools: fingers, brushes and even the subscription tear-out postcards from magazines. Enjoying the marks the cards made, she moved on to using playing cards and now paints more than half of each painting using cards. Her primary subject has always been the human form.
