About the Artist: My name is Caitlin and I’m from a small fishing town in the Gulf of Alaska. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Utah School of Architecture with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architectural Studies. While attending school, I interned with with the firm +Mooney Architecture working on a competition for the redesign of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Port au Prince, Haiti. The following summer (2013) I moved to New Haven, Connecticut to attend the Yale School of Architecture. I graduated in the spring of 2016 with my Architectural Masters and moved to New York not long after. There, I worked as an Teaching Artist for the arts-in-education nonprofit Marquis Studios (2017-18). I commercial fished salmon in Uganik this summer (2018) and currently work as a designer for RIM Architects in Anchorage, Alaska.
