Caitlin Smail

Caitlin Smail was born in New York, but grew up in London. As a child, she was influenced by the work of her grandfather, the American artist and photographer, Curtis Moffat.  Whilst still at school she started attending classes at the Byham Shaw School of Art in London, followed by a course at the Academie de Porte Royale in Paris, before going up to Cambridge University to read Art History.

​As a mature student she returned to her art studies by doing a part-time art foundation course at Central St Martins (London University of the Arts).
