About Caitlin Dundon


I have been interested in words combined with images as long as I can remember. I love the way words in art can create intent and sentiment - the same manner of color and mark making on the surface of a painting create energy and mood. I am using calligraphy in my work as a means to pay homage to older and simpler times on our planet but also as a way to slow myself down and connect to my self and others on a more intimate level. I am trying to keep up the habit of calligraphy and hand lettering but also just handwriting and letter writing as something we need to keep doing as a society.

I have always loved making books, both handmade, self published (see my first self-published book Brave Spirit here) and published (see my 2019 mixed media book The Painted Word published by Schiffer here) and it is my intention to keep creating everything from postcards and greeting cards to original artwork that can be featured in books both coffee-table style works and how-to books on mixed media art, handwriting and lettering of all kinds.

I will also be steadily working on both calligraphy and mixed media art painting how-to videos as I continue teaching in Seattle as well as at conferences, art centers and artist retreats across the United States and hopefully other countries as well. In the last couple years I have taught at: Art & Soul Mixed Media Retreats (Portland, OR; Kansas City, MO; Minneapolis, MN), Art Unraveled (Phoenix, AZ), Letters of Joy Calligraphy Conference (Seattle, WA) , West Coast Calligraphy Society (British Columbia, Canada), Art is You (Petaluma CA), South Hill Artists Workshop (Puyallup, WA), White River Valley Museum (Auburn, WA), Mendocino Art Center (Mendocino, Ca), Ghost Ranch (Abiquiu, NM), the University of Washington’s Experimental College and Upward Bound (Seattle, WA).

I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining me in this incredible journey. We artists cannot always get ahead in this world without support from friends, new friends, family and even unknown patrons who we share something in common with, whether it is a love of lettering, art, words and quotations or simply creativity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Goals
$5 of $600 per month
When I reach $600 a month I will print two new greeting card designs so patrons who have joined at the $10 level or higher will benefit!
