I'm so excited!!!!

It's been many many years since I've had a show in my home. It's always been my favorite way to show and sell my work. I get to talk to people in the comfort of my surroundings, everything I need is at my fingertips, my house and studio are sure to be clean....it's a special time.
I'm already preparing, and, I'm giddy about it!

This week I'm finishing up paintings for a show at Satori Hair Salon - a beautiful building with huge white walls and awesome hooks and lines to hang the work. Skylights and lots of space. I'm excited about it as well! Work (will be photographed this time and will go up on this site) will be there to see for the month of February.
I'm also showing through February at The Red Tavern! Go treat yourself to a brunch and some bocce, or dinner and some bocce.

Let's not forget Monk's Wine Lounge. I put up some more new work there to keep it fresh and there are some lovelies just waiting to be seen over there.

All these places are in Chico - my Open Studio will be in Durham.

I'm back to work, and I wish you all a wonderful day!

New Shows!

I have my very first gallery show at:
Butte College
from 4:30 - 6:30,
and I'm still finishing up(!!)

There is indeed, a flurry of activity happening in my studio right now. I am painting on hollow doors, trying to paint loose, but somehow still using my ruler for horizon lines, attempting to draw with my left hand some; to have my concentration be on lines instead of the big picture. I'm using new "toys" (materials) that are adding a new look and feel, which is thrilling, and the new additions are National Geographic pictures that have been treated to look splotchy and painterly and mesmerizing. It's fun to have something to mix up my style.
The paintings are big, and my studio seems dwarfed by their stature.
I can't wait to see them when they are all done. ...And get them on the gallery walls so that I can walk freely through my studio again.

I am, however, trying to enact The Pomodoro Technique and commit to 25-minute intervals of energy put into the very important details that are not painting. So, Hello!

Right after I finish this show at Butte, called The Portal Series: Opportunity Knocks, I'll be back in the studio working on smaller works for:

Chikoko's Winter Bizarre Bazaar
December 14th - 15th
10 - 5
@ The Chico Women's Club
592 E 3rd Street

I've also got new work slated to hit Monk's sometime in December...AND, I might be working on a local mural come the new year; but that is still in talks.

It's all very exciting!

I'm an incredibly busy girl and happy to be so.

Cheers! My 25 minutes is up!

New Gallery!!!!!

 photo joyfulnest_zpsaed50fb2.png

If you haven't been to Auburn - you should try to make a trip. Old Town is as darling as it gets, and Tatiana Allen just opened the doors to her new shop Joyful Nest this past weekend.

Local Artists from Northern California adorn the walls and shelves of this darling gallery. MY art was chosen to be there and I couldn't be happier! Great environment, a friend reaching up for the stars and following her dreams, magical gifts for house and home, and a really cute town to boot! Win, win, win!

I'll let you all know when the grand opening is, but it is open for business now!

Joyful Nest: 351 Commercial St. Auburn, CA 95603


Open 10 - 5pm!

Thank you all for coming to Beatnik's for my Art Reception!!!
It was a beautiful day; All day.
Right up until my smiling face hit the pillow.
I am so lucky.

The show will be up until the end of April!

March 4, 2013

New Available Work!

My first art reception in a long while will happen at Beatnik's Cafe and Breakfast House on E 8th Street in Chico on Wednesday March 13th from 5pm - 7pm.
Got a bunch of pieces up there now, hope to have more pieces by the reception.

February 11, 2013

Greetings and Salutations!

Starting to give some more attention to the details...budding flowers, cleaning my bathroom, sounds of spring, updating my website...

A big thank you to Michelle Camy who photographed my paintings! What a great feeling it is to be able to post some recent work! And the colors and contrasts are so great! I'm super stoked.

I thought I might extend the invitation to like my Artwork by Caitlin Facebook page. I update and have real time shows pretty often and most of the paintings are pieces that usually don't make it onto my website.

Like my page for added insight and new artwork releases - Here is the link: Artwork by Caitlin.

In fact, there will be a sneak peak / online sale of brand new work THIS THURSDAY, Feb 21st!

Shows, shows, shows!!

Greetings from Durham, California - where the mosquitoes are as big as Dachshunds, there is always a tractor in front or behind you, and orchards as far as the eye can see.

Well, it's September already, and I'm busy in the studio making new work for "Artober" here in Chico. A major art month. I've got quite a few shows coming up, so I thought it would be smart to let everyone know when and where they are!

Monk's Wine Lounge: This Friday the 14th, join me @ Monk's for the Art Hop from 5 8pm!

Cafe Flo: Art Reception on Wednesday the 19th from 5:30 - 7:30pm. Located @ 365 6th Street in Chico, CA.

The first weekend in October 2012 I will have work in 3 different places:

My new series of Chickens will be making their first appearance in the windows and interior of Kirk's Jewelry which is located at 246 West 3rd Street in Chico.

New artwork will be on display at Monk's Wine Lounge - TBA ...all I know is that it will be new.

Be sure to make the Sierra Oro Farm Trail where I will be making an appearance at Gale Vineyards with my artwork...most likely with a glass of wine in one hand and the other extended out to greet you!

I know. It's been a while since I updated my website, but I'm on it! I've got a few new pieces up, and you can expect a whole lot more in the upcoming weeks.


May 31, 2012

June 8th. Get ready for some brand new material.

Friday, May 13th at 11am. Cafe au Play Meet and Greet!

Come join me on Friday, May 13th at 11am for a Moment to Meet the Artist whose work has been showing at Café au Play these past few months. Her name is Caitlin, she likes to paint, and she would love to meet you!

This will be a closing reception, as another artist is being summoned to adorn the walls and keep the variety alive!

If there is a painting you have been admiring, dreaming of, pining for – but due to taxes, the economy, your children - you just can’t afford it, I welcome payment plans and I’m also approachable if there is a more feasible price you would like to discuss.

Art Reception in CHICO! May 7th at Monk's Wine Lounge & Bistro!!!!

Hello everyone!

Today is a beautiful day - the sun is out, the taxes are done, the birds are chirping and I am working on some magnificent new paintings for my upcoming show at Monk's in Chico. There will be big ones - big enough to fill that space that's always needed that certain something, and medium ones for just a splash of color and sentiment to fill your homes. I am also going to make small little pieces called Caitlettes - which I'll be selling from a bin, in the Lounge, that you can take home with you that very night!

Plus - Music from Mood: Swing - a beat that will make toes tap, your hips sway, and your finger snap. Pam and Robert, I can't wait!!

The show will be up for the summer - I believe I'll be taking the show down in August, but May 7th from 7pm - 9pm (although I'll be there earlier to see anyone who feels like having a glass of wine and a look-see with me) a Big Art Event and a Good Time is taking place.

I'll be sending out information via email this week and please, spread the word!

February 10, 2011


Life moves so FAST..before you know it, life is like that bus from Speed and you can't hit the brakes.
Every once in a while, an event comes around to remind us of where we are and what is all around us. I am talking about the Portland Love Show.
Gaggles of cool people milling around, admiring artwork from other cool people who are also milling around, all partaking of the potluck goodness everyone has provided for each other and sipping on spirits of the great Ninkasi. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Well, my bus doesn't stop that often, but I participated in this group show, my very FIRST time in a group show since I moved to Portland. It's not often I make the time to sit back and enjoy a show, let alone one that I'm in!!
Hope to see you there!

Last Thursday Art Walk on Alberta Street!

My luck has followed me to this beautiful city.
Taking a leisurely walk down the colorful street of NE Alberta, I popped into a wonderful store called Real Deals Home Decor. I spoke with the owner, Holly - almost unable to reign in my excitement about being here. We got to talking, and before you know it - she invited me to be the artist of the month in September for the Last Thursday Art Walk!!! I am so stoked and am preparing as I write this.

My very first show as a new Portlander! :)

More news to follow!

Also, I have an interview with the CNR about working as an artist. I'll give out an update as soon as I have one!

(Deer eyes in headlights)

I've been so busy painting to get ready, I've neglected to mention it. It will happen every first Saturday of each month, and the event lasts from 4pm - 8pm.

Open Studio ART Tours!!

Once again, we are quickly approaching that magical time where local artists start picking up after themselves and buy wine and cheese for others besides themselves...yes. It's Artober, and for the first and second weekends of October, the studios of more than 100 Chico Artists are open to the public. It's festive, it's intimate, it's exciting and everyone leaves with a greater understanding of artwork, of particular artmakers, or of the mediums we use to make what we do....OR they leave with paintings!

The Art Reception is at the Chico Art Center from 6-9pm on October 6th. For information on that, go to www.chicoartcenter.com.

Look forward to seeing you here! Email me for more information, or just because!

January 21, 2006
