Painter and illustrator Cleopatra Cutler (she/her) is best known for her colorful natural landscapes and graphic art style portraits.
Cleopatra loves to explore the intersection between our cultures and the land. She's guided by a simple philosophy, to leave it better than she found it, “Campsite Rules.” This goes for the land we occupy and her interpersonal relationships, big and small. The kid in her loves the goodness of this principle, and the adult in her fears scarcity. She sees this battle on the individual and systemic level, and she paints in pursuit of a world enriched and healed by us. Cleopatra has a special love for art over the hearth, murals, and art in bustling places where you might not expect; art for the home and art to the people.
She lives and works on the unceded ancestral lands of the Duwamish people in Seattle, Washington.
