About the Artist
Kaitlyn Metcalf is a native daughter of New Orleans, Louisiana, where she was brought up on crawfish & po-boys, a love of Jazz Fest & Mardi Gras and an appreciation for culture…all with a splash of southern hospitality. Led by her passion for the arts, Kaitlyn traveled north to attend Maine College of Art in Portland where she graduated with Honors, attaining a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting with a minor in Art History. After graduating from MECA, Kaitlyn ventured even further north to Downeast Maine where she now lives. Most of Kaitlyn’s works are based on her experiences living in rural Maine, with the natural world often being at the center of focus.
Kaitlyn is always interested in materials integration within her paintings as a way to assist in concept development. Varying elements such as barnacles, thread, fishing line, charts, sand, clay, glass beads and gold leaf are mixed into her paintings to expand not only surface interest, but to also create a dialogue between object and imagery. She enjoys giving the viewer an element of surprise that is so well integrated, they think it is actually painted until they look closer.
