Kaitlyn Lebrun was born in Ottawa and grew up with a twin fascination for art and math/science. She participated in multiple art classes and volunteer art shows as well as her own personal projects throughout High School. She has participated in the city-wide youth art show Young at Art since 2014, receiving several awards. She is currently pursuing a Mechanical Engineering degree at Carleton University, and intends to combine her love of engineering and art in her future endeavors.
Through my art I attempt to capture feelings, namely the fleeting ones (where a whiff of a nondescript scent floats by and suddenly a familiar “deja-vu” feeling washes over you and leaves as fast as it came) using and experimenting with whatever materials come my way. I am inspired by the juxtaposition of images seemingly innocent (such as those found in children’s books) with darker themes that question morality, relationships, emotion and religion.
