Casembroot lived in Sicily from 1623. He particularly distinguished himself at Messina painting landscapes and marine subjects, generally showing storms in the latter. He occasionally painted historical events, and some pictures by him of scenes from the Passion are in the church of San Gioacchino at Messina. He also left a few etchings of the port of Messina and other marine subjects and Cornelis Bol made a series of etchings after five of his harbour scenes; four are of Italian subjects, but one shows Lambeth Palace in London.
