About

My name is Cassandra Lee and I am a young artist based in Johannesburg South Africa. I am a keen daydreamer as well as a dedicated worker whose interests all centre around the arts.

I always have written and illustrated my own stories. Exploring the visuals of an imagined world is something I have always done instinctively, before I even knew I could follow it as a career path. Creating a story and then conveying that story to the rest of the world through fleshing out the design, colours, atmosphere and mood is truly my greatest passion.

On a daily basis I keep pushing my skills to the next level by taking on new and challenging vis-dev projects, and trying to learn as much as possible about the field of concept art. Character design is my main focus and the part I enjoy the most.

The majority of my work is built around my own IP, Woolgathering, which is a story I wrote, and for which I am currently creating a graphic novel. My story follows the adventures of a young teen prince who discovers his daydreams have the ability to create new worlds that could potentially absorb him from reality forever.
