REPETITION — As a child, I would spend hours, upon hours, sketching the same object. Whether it be a flower, a person or more commonly - my own hand. I dedicated all of my time having pencil to paper, seeing it as nothing more than a passion to create. It wasn’t until this past year that I reflected back on those early years, identifying this time as a refining of skills. The desire to expand these skills has only intensified, immersing myself into the digital world of design, illustration and animation, using past travels and modern/traditional artists as a fountain of inspiration.

Hi Caitlyn, welcome to the Woman Of Series! Can you tell us what it is you create?

My creative flow tends to cover a lot of areas from illustration, animation, fine arts and the occasional photography. It all begins in the same way - influence and a lot of paper.

Talk us through your creative process. How do you reach your signature style?
My creative process begins with music - always. I'm not talking classical either, Biggie Smalls is my go-to. 

What is your big hope and dream for your work?
Staying true to my style and striving to not only appease my eye for design, but those of the individuals and groups that I create for.

What are your top 3 superpowers?
1. My ability to rap Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' 2. My anxiety as it allows me to be empathetic 3. I'll own any dance floor, any time.

We’re all about women inspiring women. Who inspires you?
My sister and her ability to fully excel with both sides of her cranium. Being extremely creative and intelligent - what a lady.

What advice would you impart on the next generation of women?
Travel as far and as wide as you can - there is so much beauty and inspiration to be seen.
