"Gamers often feel a need to defend their passion. My mom used to question the value of the stuff I played while growing up… It would've been a lot easier and quicker to just show her the work of artist Kathryn DeFeo (known as Juuhachi)."

- Jeff Grubb, Games Journalist at Venturebeat.com


Bold, brightly-colored and kinetic, the elasticity of Kathryn's work has been featured in game projects from all across the spectrum, spanning from mobile to console to a healthy serving of indie titles . During the time spent away from the drawing board, you're likely to find her reading, shapeshifting and traveling whenever possible.
