Following our member’s business meeting at 6:30 on Wednesday November 13, 2013 in the Ceramics Room of the Newington Senior and Disabled Center (120 Cedar St. in Newington), there will be a demonstration by caricature artist Judy Tourangeau. Meetings are free and open to the public.
Judy Tourangeau, owner of JT Art & Design, has over two decades of diverse graphic design & art direction experience as an employee of marketing firms and printing & creative companies, and today supplements her business with a design position at a local hospital.
Her many years of experience with these companies provided her invaluable knowledge of traditional aspects of design, and methods of print production and printing processes. She holds a BFA in Graphic Communications from Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut.
Also a gifted artist, Judy creates illustration and draws portraits and gift or live caricatures for business, school, non-profit and private customers.
Because of Judy’s natural talent for portraiture, she has developed a uniquecaricature style, in essence creating “Portraicatures”, with large heads and small bodies or head shots if preferred (but decidedly different than the over-exaggerated style that may be unkind or grossly inaccurate in portraying a person’s distinctive features). She strives to capture her subjects in a flattering way!
