Cassandra Gilby has been a life long artist. At the age of 30 she finally mustered up the courage to showcase some of her oil paintings online. She specializes in oil paintings, usually still lifes but she also enjoys doing live figure paintings as well. She prefers to paint from life and will occasionally do a pet portrait from a photo. Her style reflects her continuous study in colour theory and of course, light. She studied fine art at Sheridan college in 2008.

Her work is shown through a connected vintage furnishing business venture called NostalgicalCo. NostalgicalCo is a carefully curated collection of antiques, home furnishings and art that provoke a sense of nostalgia and magic. Pieces are available for purchase as well as rent for set decoration. Please check out NostalgicalCo on etsy for more information.
