Caitlyn Mello is a self-taught, mixed media artist, currently residing in Waldo County, Maine. She is also an educated and trained environmental scientist, earning a BS in Environmental Earth and Ocean Sciences from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Originally from Rhode Island, Caitlyn traveled across the US, managing to always live near an ocean. This coastal connection is evident in her most recent work, where she is pushing to highlight researched and documented affects of climate change on ocean life, more specifically, Maine ocean life.
Her creative practice began when she was young. Always creating, but rarely sharing. In 2014, she began to showcase and sell her artwork throughout the US. Caitlyn’s work has now been showcased in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, California, and most recently Maine. She has participated in jurored group shows, solo pop-up galleries, and is currently working on a local solo exhibition (Summer 2018).
She gravitates towards an array of mediums, with a strong focus on ink manipulation. She strives to contrast abstract with detail in her work. She usually achieves this by combining two or more mediums and/or styles.
Caitlyn’s also passionate about using her artwork to make a global positive impact. 10% profit from each original artwork sale is donated to water improvement projects around the globe, with the combined efforts of the Bitgive Foundation and Givetrack.org.
