Profile Image

Caitlin Kwaijtaal is a 2d animator and illustrator, based in the Netherlands.

She graduated from St.joost Art Academy in 2020 with a Bachelor of Art degree in illustrated & animated storytelling.
Caitlin is mainly concerned with exploring 2d animation, in which she does not limit herself to specific styles or software. The most important is that the style adds to the story being told. Always eager to learn, Caitlin is always looking for new ways of storytelling, both in visual language and in medium. Her personal work is mainly focused on developing fictional worlds, in which what-if scenarios, escapism or social relationships often play a major role. Caitlin’s qualities lie in setting up story concepts and building atmosphere in (moving) images.
In her spare time she often goes beyond the 2d medium and makes various hand made items; from costumes and dicebags to booknooks.

Caitlin likes to work in a team and can fulfill different roles from concept and development to production.

What I can offer:

2D animations: cel and roto – digital or analogue

Illustrations: prints/posters, cards, backgrounds, characters and styleframes – digital or analogue

Physical Artworks like lino prints, murals and dioramas/booknooks.
