Caitlin Cherry was born in 1987 in Chicago, IL and now lives and works in NY. Her muse is a googly-eyed anthropomorphic golem that she manipulates within maquettes. These studies are then painted from life. Caitlin graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010. In 2009 she received the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship to attend Yale University's Summer School of Art in Norfolk, CT. Caitlin has exhibited nationally and in January 2012 participated in the group show, NEXT GENERATION at Contemporary Wing Gallery in Washington, D.C.
