Bio:
Kaitlyn was raised in Kamloops, British Columbia where she grew up with a love and admiration for the Visual Arts. During her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at TRU, she concentrated on photography. Kaitlyn’s primary subject matter was the historical Tranquille Creek and Padova City location. There she captured the landscape and abandoned grounds of the old Tuberculosis Centre.

Since graduating from Thompson Rivers University, Kaitlyn has moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in order to gain her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Saskatchewan.  Currently, Kaitlyn’s painting and research practice is focused on the relationships built during her time in New York on an exchange with NYU through the Women and Gender Studies department, touching on topics of: beauty, gender, body image, and how our relationships are developed within a metropolitan city.
