Kristy Cavaretta (b. 1980) is a graphic designer, artist, and mother of three, living on the Southern Maine seacoast. She enjoys exploring the minutiae of domestic life through a variety of media.
Cavaretta earned her undergraduate degree in Visual and Media Arts from Boston’s Emerson College and a Graphic Design Certificate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2012 she moved to the seacoast with her husband after a decade of working in the film industry. She worked as a graphic designer until she had her first child in 2016 and continues to work as a freelance designer for numerous nonprofit organizations, including the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and Old York Historical Society. Cavaretta began to learn printmaking in 2014 at Chases Garage in York, Maine in various workshop settings. Since having her children she has leaned into block printing, direct object printing, and collagraph printing for their accessibility and speed. Either the ability to make a block in a single nap time sitting or chipping away at a larger work little by little over a long period of time.”
Cavaretta’s work was featured in ‘All Together Now,’ on view February 11-26, 2023.
“This woodblock print illustrates the natural state of mother’s body as shelter, comfort, and plaything to young children.”
