Kaitlyn Sapone

Illustrator and Designer 

-

Kaitlyn is an illustrator, designer, and developer. She's an award-winning artist and is passionate about taking an idea from rough sketch to reality.  

She enjoys longboarding, unless there's snow on the ground, then she's likely snowboarding. And when she's not on a board, she's probably screen printing.  And when she's not doing one of those things, or... working, she's likely paddling around in her Mad River canoe, or honing the skills of her latest passion — fly fishing. But most importantly, she never leaves home without packing a sketch book and a pencil. From the age of about five on, Kaitlyn has dedicated a least a few hours each day to practice her drawing. 

Kaitlyn holds a BS in Design Technology and a BA in Fine Art from Bemidji State University.

My inspiration

 

"For me design itself is an inspiration, even the bad stuff.  It inspires me to make something better, something that is more appealing, something that tells a story and makes connections with others"
