Jayes Caitlin (b. 1988 Portland OR), is an abstract painter, designer, and screen printer, currently working in Los Angeles CA.

Her projects utilize screen printing, collage, painting, fibers, and publishing as medium, sharing an abstract aesthetic for bright colors, collage, textures, shapes, and the use of plastic-y, viscus liquids on canvas or paper.
