Kaitlin is a painter immersed in the world of large moody skies, pretty ladies, and flowers. Right now she’s loving looking up and painting the sky. She paints in oil and acrylic and loves watching the canvas come to life. Her goal as an artist is to provide the viewer with a moment of retreat from day-to-day chaos of life with a reminder of the beauty and peace we're surrounded with when only we look for it.
Kaitlin’s love of creating began long ago with a girl scout cookie. Her middle school art teacher taught the class how to layer prisma colors to bring the rich chocolate to life. She’s studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and at the University of Texas in Austin. She’s worked at one of Austin’s largest art galleries. Kaitlin also is a real estate broker and studied finance in college alongside art.
When she’s not in the studio, she’s playing with her baby, growing her real estate business, hanging out with her husband, has her nose buried in a book, or is road tripping to some fun adventure.
