Originally from Ontario, Canada, Kaitlyn Roberts is a multi-disciplinary artist who has achieved her Honours BA in Visual Arts. Her artistic education birthed an attraction to explore autoethnography. Roberts’ studio practice, specifically, surveys the complexity of mental illness translated through visual art while highlighting how it affects both the artist and the viewer.
As a current candidate for the Master of Fine Arts degree from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Roberts is using her practice to investigate the relationship between the mind and the body. This includes research into the connections between mental illnesses and the viewer’s gaze.
