In this week's episode, Allie is joined by polymer clay artist Caitlin. Cait shares how she got started with clay, what it was like being creative and growing up with ADHD, and where her inspiration comes from.

Meet my Guest!
Ex's and Oh's was created in 2020 during a rough time in my life. Art was my way of coping. As a child, I took ceramic classes and was hooked on the texture and how the clay felt between my fingers (it was like a soothing mechanism). This was very therapeutic for me- I became addicted to making things, including earrings. I sold all 20 earrings I made on Facebook and couldn't believe people liked my creations. I had my first market in November 2020, and I remember meeting many incredible people- vendors and customers. They were the light. The light I have been searching for. So, thank you for allowing me to create something beautiful with a purpose.

​I quit my job in January 2022 to become an artist full-time. Since then, I have hosted markets for other local vendors, like myself, to connect with the art community. In May of 2022, I decided to put aside hosting markets due to having to decide between making art or creating a space for artists. I chose to make art- so here we are! It was the best decision for my family and me. So here's to jumping into the unknown and doing what I love!

xoxo- Cait
