Initially, creating photo composites began as a way to visually transport herself to another realm, such as with the images her series Pollatoggle. This sentiment evolved with Cloud Alchemy, placing magic within the set of an otherwise bland dining room. Kaitrin’s most recent series is progressing in a similar manner, but aims to highlight the eccentricities of local Cape areas. Masquer is a show with selected images from each of these series, with an array of whimsical characters played by the one artist.
Outside of the fine art world, Kaitrin can be found be found wandering the Cape as capecod.com’s photographer, painting colorful art cars, and planning to travel wherever she can get.
