Caitlin grew up in rural Southern Illinois on land that has been passed down through her family for generations. She spent her childhood running through the creek and climbing trees with her sisters, watercolor painting at her grandparents kitchen table overlooking the garden, cooking, and sewing. Her world was saturated in the natural and domestic spheres: a dynamic harmony ever present between creation and creating.
Even though she now lives in New Orleans with her husband, Andrew, their daughter Laurel, and kitty Violet, her art is her way of returning to the natural world of her childhood in the only way that she can. With a B.A. in English and Studio Art (Painting) from Tulane University and an M.A. in Fibers (Textile Design/Print & Pattern) from the Savannah College of Art and Design, she works as an artist and textile designer. Caitlin strives to live and work from her deepest values of creativity, simplicity, mindfulness, and adventure.
