GirlGeek of the Week
April 2000

Kitty Mead

Kitty Mead

Kitty says that art has always been her friend: she turns to art when she's had a stressful day and needs to relax. When Kitty and her daughter bought their first PC it was love at first sight when it came to creating computer art. She would eventually outgrow the Window's paint program and founded FullMoon Graphics, a design firm that would gain popularity quickly. It became so popular in fact, that she began to spend fewer hours at her full time job as Respiratory Therapist to devote time to her own business--Ink2Art.

When did you first discover your love and/or obsession with computers and technology?

After dabbling with the simple paint programs, I knew that I wanted more! I have a habit of getting totally consumed by anything that I fall in love with, and that's exactly what I did when I discovered that I wanted to create my art on a computer. I spent hours and hours scouring the Web, buying graphic art books and books about how to make a Website. I bought cheap little paint programs and practiced, practiced, practiced every waking moment! FullMoon Graphics was born in 1995, although it has grown tremendously since then.

How do you earn a living?

I still work two days a week at a hospital (great benefits!), but the other 120 hours a week I am creating Websites and designing graphics for my company, Ink2Art.

Do you consider yourself a Geek?

Oh sure! I think the stereotypical "geek" of the early days is gone, and I actually consider it an honor to be called a geek. When I see new color schemes in print or TV I make a note to myself to try that combo out on my graphics projects. I am the computer resource person amongst my co-workers at the hospital. I dream in HTML. Well, I think you get the point!

What is your favorite Website?

Eww, tough one! As a starting point for browsing new and unique sites (non-commercial) I always hop over to Joe Jenett's CoolStop, a great portal site! I also have an addiction to software and photoCD's, so I spend a lot of time at some of the popular online graphics and photo stores."

What do you do when you are not working?

I'm still creating graphics, but for myself. I love to use the computer to explore my free expression, my time to let it all out and try different things. Then, I post my experiments on a new site of mine, 24-7cool.com. I also talk to my Diva sisters, bond with hubby and keep a beautiful home. Oh, and sometimes I sleep a little. That's it!
