Caitlin Chiocchio is an Artist and Designer from a coastal hamlet called Stony Creek in CT, and a recent graduate from Rhode Island School of Design, having majored in Apparel Design. Caitlin is endlessly inspired by her coastal surroundings. The subtle hues and textures of the shore influence every piece she makes, whether it be a vast seascape oil painting or a jacket embellished with oyster shells. She is inspired by the ephemerality of nature, and the impermanency of the coastline due to rising tides. This urgency drives her passion to create art and designs in many media, immortalizing the beauty of her surroundings.
