About

Kaitlin Kraemer (b.1985) grew up in the greater Boston, MA area.  She earned her BA in Anthropology and Studio Fine Arts from Union College and received a graduate certificate in Oil Painting from Tufts University.  She also completed a summer semester at The Marchutz School of Fine Arts in Aix-en-Provence, France.  Prior to becoming a full-time practicing artist, Kaitlin worked in development at Harvard University, and in London at The Courtauld Institute of Art and University of the Arts London.

Over the years, Kaitlin’s artwork has evolved into an abstract exploration of nature vs. nurture, exploring the impact one’s surroundings has on one’s emotional state and physical well-being.  Using vivid colors and chaotic brushstrokes, her paintings render the many diverse and contradicting elements that exist in our environment, as well as in ourselves: creation and destruction; tranquility and turmoil; strength and fragility; devotion and neglect – revealing our many beautiful complexities, and challenging viewers to quite literally ‘think outside the box’.

Kaitlin is currently based in Nice, France, exhibiting her work locally and internationally.  In addition to her painting practice, she also serves as an Art Dealer / Consultant for a leading contemporary art gallery in New England.
