Hello Steemit world!

My name is Caitlin McDonagh, and I'm a visual artist and illustrator living in Montreal, Quebec. I create intricate, illustrative acrylagouache paintings that are full of vibrant colors, lots of patterns and all sorts of mysterious creatures. Inspired by folklore, storytelling, history and various real and unreal sources, I'm explore the blurring line between Human Life and Nature.

My studio is in my home, which means that I spend lots of hours with my cats, coffee and podcasts. Here is a view of my work space (above) and a piece from my current series in the works "In These Places" which will be exhibited later this month in British Columbia, Canada. I'm very excited to share my work with you all, looks into my progress and materials and what I'm up to in my studio.

Best wishes and happy new year!

Caitlin.

I have recently made an orientation video that will help you in your journey here - and will hopefully answer all the questions that took me months to figure out.

Welcome to Steemit-- hope you will enjoy your time here with us!

There's definitely a growing artists community here, as well as lots of people who are very supportive of the arts. It takes a little time to find your feet and you niche, but it is well worth the effort and time.
