Outside of her artistic pursuits, Kaitlin finds joy in exploring the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley with her husband, son, and mini schnauzer. Whether it’s hiking in the Shawangunks or admiring the scenic wonders of the Catskills, she draws inspiration from the region’s breathtaking landscapes.

As Kaitlin embarks on this new chapter of motherhood with her one-year-old son Charlie, she looks forward to infusing her art with a renewed perspective and sense of wonder.
