CT Art & Graphic Design Studio

JT Art & Design is a multi-faceted art and design studio located in the greater Naugatuck Valley that serves individuals and small business clients throughout Connecticut and beyond, including New York State, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The Art part of the studio refers to various artistic offerings including popular, live caricature entertainment for corporate events, Bar Mitzvahs, birthdays, post-graduations, Grand Openings, fundraisers and just about any event or celebration you can imagine, including 18 weddings this year alone. It’s offerings include custom illustration, as well as specialization in portraiture (people, pets, and homes) and caricature commissions from photos (often via email). In addition, working from the new art, custom personalized caricature products, including stationery,apparel, favors and more can be ordered.


As of 2017, you can visit Judy’s ETSY shop, listed as “JTPortraicatures” (which includes most of her current commission offerings, plus a few things not reflected here: pet memorial card featuring a custom pet portrait, and custom-designed and created theme collage featuring a special person close-up, partaking in his/her hobby, and or related graphics and his/her name available digitally).

A late 2017 project, her first ever mural, was for a 165 square foot area encompassing approximately two full walls in a baby nursery. It was an experiment of sorts in acrylic paint, since most of her studio work is created with dry mixed media, and other than a few paint nights, she had nary picked up a brush in 25 years! Happily, it was a success and the studio hopes to add more (but smaller) indoor murals to it’s offerings if the opportunity arises. Give her a call or email to discuss and get a quote for your mural at a very competitive price.

On a related note, she is hoping to hone paint skills and possibly offer paint night type classes through existing studios, or on her own in private homes or in facilities in the future. Sign up for the newsletter (4-5x a year generally) and it will keep you posted on additional offerings, vending dates and other news!

The Graphic Design Studio provides creative design and graphics for marketing/ communications and creative services firms, as well as being well-suited to deal with small businesses and sole proprietors directly. Judy will lend her talent and knowledge to help you promote your product or service whether for printed materials or display media, creatively and professionally. From concept to completion, or at any stage in between, Judy will provide personalized service, without the large agency cost.

Mac-based with a working knowledge of the PC platform, Judy is adept with years of digital experience in the Adobe design, illustration and publishing software line. Possessing artistic ability, in addition to innate creativity and long-time design experience, she is confident she will meet your expectations. She has also become quite proficient in photo retouching and collage work, and can work some magic with your photos or create special custom imagery, containing text, quotes etc.



About the Artist/Designer


Graphic Designer New Haven CT
One of the most outstanding GigMasters members for 2018!
Mommy Poppins Bestie Finalist

Judy Tourangeau, artist and designer, who in addition to drawing her whole life, has over two decades of diverse graphic design & art direction experience as an full-time employee of Fairfield and New Haven County agencies, marketing firms and printing & creative companies, most recently at an area hospital for 8 years, where she continues to provide some freelance design.

Her many years of work within these companies and facilities provided her with invaluable knowledge of traditional aspects of design, and methods of print production and printing processes. This has proven to be a tremendous asset today in conjunction with her independently acquired digital print design and production expertise, often not found in younger designers.

In her various positions and in her own business, she also solely designed and/or was instrumental in the creation of a variety of communications pieces for non-profit, retail, consumer and corporate businesses over the years, often for budget-conscious clients with quick-turnaround needs.

She holds a BFA in Graphic Communications from Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut. She is a past member of the Greater Waterbury and Naugatuck Chambers of Commerce, current member of Arts & Culture Collaborative, Waterbury Region and is involved in online networking and social media, most notably with her Facebook Page – JT Art & Design, Instagram and Pinterest, where you can see many more samples of her work,
as well as a personal professional profile on LinkedIn.


In her leisure time, she sings in the Naugatuck Community Choir, enjoys time with friends, live music and theatre performances, beaches, travel, bicycling and keeping life exciting and interesting, preferably not all work and no play! That said, her creative art work is not really “work” at all.
