Hey there! My name is Caitlyn DubÃ© and I live in the U.S. Truth be told, I always find these personal things really difficult and awkward, but it seems that since Iâ€™m new to this site, this personal about page serves as my only credentials soooo here we go!
Well, art has been part of my life for a long time. I have other talents too like singing and writing, which I developed around the same time: 3rd grade. I moved a lot as a kid so Iâ€™ve experienced many kinds of people, places, and their culture. I was born in the U.S., but Iâ€™ve lived in Canada and Puerto Rico. Iâ€™ve also traveled to France which was one of the best experiences of my life. Japan or Ireland is next on my list!
I have ample experience in the world of art. Iâ€™ve taken school classes since 3rd grade, all the way to IB High School art scoring 2nd highest in my class. Iâ€™ve worked with ink, acrylic, oil, watercolor, pen, graphite, charcoal, wood, foam, metal, and fabrics. But my favorite medium is ink, pencil, and metal.
Now, I have swapped ACEOs or ATCs before over Instagram where you can see some of my work @caitydubs221B or this link http://instagram.com/caitydubs221b
I pretty much do whatever comes to mind, but itâ€™s usually inspired by something someoneâ€™s said or a story for a novel I have in my head. I have seven different books Iâ€™m writing which either means Iâ€™m an incredible multi-tasker or I have a problematic lack of focus. Ha!
Considering I have traded with people internationally, swapping would not be something new. I am here for more trustworthy access to art and easier swapping. Plus, itâ€™s fun and I love seeing the postage stamps from around the world!
I hope this site can help me interact with some incredible artists and people. I always hope that Iâ€™m able to make someoneâ€™s day! Thanks for making this site Swap-Bot!
But please be assured that I will love whatever it is I get! Again, thank you!
