Cait Irwin

​Cait Irwin is a woman of many passions. She is an artist, entrepreneur,activist,environmentalist,

author and visionary.  She knew since early childhood that she was an artist.

Completely self taught, Cait has built a vast multi-media portfolio. She describes her abilities as somewhat of a "knowing" about how to use the material at hand. Her fearless nature has enabled her to dive into new endeavors without hesitation as she continually evolves as an artist. 


The Muralist

It was at age 12 when Irwin discovered her ability to work BIG. While painting

a group of "jazz Cats" on her bedroom ceiling, she realized that she could see 

the entire completed image in her head. She realized there was no need to measure or 

grid out the image on the wall because she saw the proportions in her mind.  So, whether  the image is on a small sheet of paper or a hundred foot wall, it is all the same in her mind. 

Cait's first professional mural was painted at age 14.  She transformed an entire high school classroom into a jungle.   Now with over 20 years 

of mural painting expereince she is truely a master of her craft.  All her work is original and done free-handed.
