THIS IS A GRAPHIC HEAVY SITE! Please allow load time if your internet is not speedy. I do not compress most of my images as I would like them displayed as best as possible - this is my online portfolio.

me photographing myself

I am Kathleen Joyce Figueroa or KAT JOY. I am a fine art artist turned digital artist, photographer, video maker, web developer, and more. My design career began as I needed to mock up the signs and murals, that I would paint, for nearly 7 seven years. During and even before high school I was into photography, video editing, and drawing. I have a BFA in Drawing and Painting, from CSU Long Beach. So, my strong fine arts foundation and new-found passion for the Graphic Arts and Web Technology was a seamless progression. 10+ years of study and professional work in the fine and digitals arts has given me unique abilities to take on a wide variety of projects with solid skills and confidence.

Today, while I continue to gain experience in ever-changing best practices of digital media, I remain open for engaging opportunities with limitless possibilities.

Examples of my work are followed, displaying a range of styles and for different types of industries and projects.
