About Mairin-Taj Caya

     I earned my BFA in Illustration at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design in Lancaster, PA, mentored under award-winning fantasy illustrator Gary Lippincott, and worked with painting master Ken Laager.

     I'm infatuated with history and mythos, utilizing age-old visual language working in tandem with the story to contribute to the tapestry of our creative saga. All stories are valid, all worth the telling. It is the artist's responsibility, their 'wheelhouse', to bridge the gap between their expertise and the worth of the concept, to illuminate an emotional or intellectual message.

     My philosophy is that communicative empathy is the primary infrastructure of successful story-telling art. I believe well-rounded experience in life creates a well-rounded, resourceful, empathetic artist; my diverse background in dance, outdoor education, agriculture, writing, and history has informed an evolving visual vocabulary with which to create storytelling skills of intimate, imaginative representation. 

     I merge personal iconography and the library of mythology’s archetypal imagery with the human experience to represent something deeper, more intrinsic, to the viewer.

     After all, as the Irish say, we accept Truth more readily when it is accompanied by Story.
