Casandra Lee is an Asian-American multimedia artist, based in Peterborough, Ontario. She has been an artist for 13 years now, and loves about every medium available in the art store. Bright colors are prevalent throughout her work. She is passionate about storytelling and capturing feelings better expressed through art. Her work is inspired by everything from the cosmos to communities to ladybugs.
In 2021, Casandra published a picture book with New Canadians Centre called Building a Home, which tells the story of newcomer children's adaptation to life in Canada. Her oil painting, Under an Apple Tree, was purchased by the City of Peterborough in 2023 and added to their public art collection. It is currently on display at City Hall.
When Casandra is not creating art, she works as a Montessori Teacher to a class of 3-6 year old children. In her spare time, she is cooking her cravings, tending to house plants, or taking long walks with her husband along the Otonabee River.
