Kaitlin Marler is a full time Christian artist who abides in the low country of Charleston with her husband Gray and orange cat George. Kaitlin is an impressionistic oil painter, indigo enthusiast, framer, book and fairy tale lover, Jesus follower, sushi lover, aspiring sailor, and outdoor adventurer.
Ever since Kaitlin visited Charleston in 2016 and fell deeply in love with the marshes and slower pace of life, she knew it was home. Upon graduating from NC State University in Raleigh, NC with a Textile Design degree in 2018 she accepted a full time position in an art gallery in the French Quarter downtown Charleston. Four years later after learning how to conduct an art business and much prayer, Kaitlin took the leap to pursue her own art full time.
Always feeling the creative call on her life and her desire for things unseen, Kaitlin was drawn to painting at age 17. Painting brought Kaitlin peace and fulfillment that exhilarated her and strengthened her faith. Ten years later the desire for painting and seeking to communicate God's peace and light through her work has become Kaitlin's deepest aspiration. She draws inspiration through her adventures in the low country of Charleston, personal faith, love for fairy tales, and things unseen. In her home studio overlooking a quiet swamp, she communicates these feelings and ideas through vibrant oil paints on birch wood panels, acrylic on local grown indigo dyed raw canvas, and oils on Rives cream paper. You can find Kaitlin's work year round at the Sea Island Farmers Market and at the Kiawah Mingo Point Oyster Roast in the summertime.
