kaitlee venable
Kaitlee artistic interests were always encouraged by family, especially her mother, and as such “artist” became an early part of her identity. It did not take long for her to become most interested in the human form, with earliest renditions dating back to 2005. Other subject interests have focused primarily on sea life, other animals, and some landscape.
