Caitlin Taguibao was born in Toronto where she is a gardener, illustrator, and mural painter. She enjoys being outside and working with her hands and has spent time working in urban gardens and organic farms. Using bright colours, her murals aim to provide warm, inviting moments to appreciate the beauty of nature. Her work is inspired by plant lore and personal stories, exploring moments of self-reflection and growth. She has worked with other artists both locally and internationally, and held her first solo exhibition Leaves and Remains at KRACK! Studio & Gallery in Yogyakarta. Her work can be seen throughout the city, where reciprocal nourishing relationships grow over time.
