Thanks for checking out my about me page! Much love!
Hello! My name is Tabitha Boughton and I am a young graphic designer from Buffalo, NY. I was born in the small town of Bemus Point NY, and by the age of 3 I was drawing pictures and telling stories. I faced many challenges growing up, including mental health issues and bullying, but every struggle I faced made me that much stronger.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Buffalo State College, where I remained in the Honors Program during my four years of education.
My goal every day is to make others smile, and to spread love the kindness wherever I go. One thing I have found as I’ve gotten older, is that the world is a dark cruel place… Or at least most of the time. I believe that a smile or a kind interaction can make someone’s day, or even temporarily relieve them from whatever is going on in their own lives. The world is a hard place to live, so let’s share love and kindness wherever we can!
My company, Tabbycat Creations is based on my two cats Gen and Layla. I often find that my cats are like therapy to me. They take away the strain of the day, and help me to relax, regroup, and most importantly, they always make me smile. I want my brand to represent community, understanding, and peace, and hope to help others with my work the way my cats have helped and inspired me.
I am currently working on a series of children’s books, primarily in the category of education. I want to be able to help children learn about topics such as diversity and mental health in a fun, understandable way that is interactive and engaging. My first book, “Color my ABC’s” is available for download on my Etsy as well as many other children’s coloring pages I have created. My ultimate goal would be to become and Children’s author, illustrator, and animator. As said by Moana of Motunui, there’s just no telling how far I’ll go!
