Caitlin Cartwright is a social change artist whose vibrant narrative works combine painting, drawing, and collage to explore the stories that connect people of all cultures and ages. Although her intimate works deal with themes of loss and isolation, each piece also contains elements of community, comfort, and hope. Many years spent living and working with vulnerable populations in locales such as Madagascar, Namibia, India, and elsewhere influence both the emotional and geographical scope of her pieces. Caitlin earned her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, as well as a masters in sustainable international development from SIT, and recently completed a six-month residency at the Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft in Columbia, NC. In combination with a long career in sustainable development, she uses art as a storytelling tool for economic empowerment, peace building, and healing and wellness. Caitlin is currently based in Ohio, and her works and collaborative community projects continue to be shown both nationally and abroad.
