about

Hello!! I am Caitlin or Caith (s/he/they pronouns).
30 years old, gemini sun, pisces moon, scorpio rising...
I began as a writer in my youth & won a couple awards for my poetry.Today, I am a career community & political activist.
By night, I am jammin' on bass guitar or playing tarot cards.
As an artist, I dabble in many mediums, including acrylics, gouache, polymer clay, digital art, & drawing. I also paint tabletop game minis as a professional service, & volunteer at The Buttonwood Tree offering art classes.I am a public, street & wall art enthusiast. My dream one day is to paint a mural that promotes free expression & neurodiversity.

artist statement

I specialize in collage & mixed-media art. My approach can be described as loose, free, unplanned, & abstract. I am obsessed with process, utlizing unpredictability to convey conflict & emotions. This approach unifies my writing & visual languages into one picture. I use these to "speak" my mind & "put together" messages from the Universe. More often than not, I use this "voice" to lift up persons who think & communicate in different ways. This is based in mimesis theory & in alignment with neurodiversity & liberation-based movements I strive to live by.Empowering people to use music & art as an alternative form or function of communication is my life's dream. I believe that art helps everyone heal & find a place in our community/society. Art intrinsically & innately bridges barriers in understanding & promotes intersectionality.My collective, action-based & gestural approach to art is part meditation, part education, & part advocacy. I have taken great joy in working with disabled, differently-abled, & drug-addicted populations from all different cultures. Some people feel a lot of big emotions & need somewhere to share them. I believe art should be healing, accessible, PUBLIC, conversational, & liberation-based. I hope to fill a socio-economic gap where people struggle every day, between commercial/capitalist interests & common people.

Rainbeau clay & Craft co.

Rainbeau Clay & Craft Co. is my polymer clay project. Combining aesthetic design & disability advocacy, Rainbeau promotes creative expression & self-promotion through shaping clay.

I hope to share creating clay figures as a natural anxiety-reliever & refuge from "adulting."Through my own personal experiences with neurodivergence, I hope to empower differently-abled individuals to explore clay in a disability-friendly context.By warming & softening the clay in your hands for people who need muscular/mobility or motor supports, or by demonstrating & modeling in lieu of expressive language, you can join me in bringing abled & disabled people together through art!

Neurographic art classes

I offer Neurographic Art classes for children & families at
The Buttonwood Tree in Middletown, CT.
You can find the Buttonwood online at buttonwood.org, or on X @buttonwoodtree.

Neurographic Art is a meditative drawing process created by Prof. Pavel Piskarev in 2015. It is done by creating one continuous looping line which is then "softened" by rounding out the edges & filling white spaces with color.Other methods can be used as well, such as tracing, patterns, writing, or even collage!This is a fun way to exist in the present moment & tap into a new way of thinking about & creating art! Maybe you haven't done art in a long time, or want to see what you are capable of creating. Let's learn more about ourselves & each other together.

Classes will take place at The Buttonwood Tree. To book, please write me at [email protected].
Cost is $20 per child, or per child with a parent or guardian supervising.
My teaching style targets young people, but certainly
ALL AGES & EXPERIENCE LEVELS ARE WELCOME!
I encourage bringing your own art supplies, but by reserving in advance you will guarantee that markers & paper will be provided for you when you arrive!By practicing mindfulness in an accessible, informal class environment guided by my soothing attention, you & your family can share precious quality time together. It can possiblty comfort difficult emotions & enhance focus holistically.Neurographic art can also be done collaboratively. Maybe you can take turns drawing a line, then a pattern or color. Or, you can both run wild & draw at the same time!
The possibilities are endless & freeing.
