Caitlin spent the majority of her childhood in Victoria's Western District, where the country air suited her allergies and the horses suited her teenage dreams. She completed a Bachelor of Education at Melbourne University, studied Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT, studied Milinery and finally realised that illustration was where she should have been all along. She completed a Diploma of Illustration in 2002 at NMIT (Now Melbourne Polytechnic) Caitlin spent ten years in the fashion industry designing prints and graphics for some of Australia's largest retailers before returning to the non- garment world of illustration in 2014. These days, when she's not writing and illustrating children's books, Caitlin creates for Melbourne Toy Company Tiger Tribe. Caitlin's books include Beetle and Boo, The Missing Treasure and The Medical Emergency. She has also illustrated Something For Fleur and Diary of a Pregnant Dad.
