Cat Boyce grew up in Bristol, Connecticut where at a young age she began taking photos with her mother’s film camera. Compelled by her passion for visual storytelling, she pursued a BFA in photography from the University of Connecticut and completed a senior thesis titled In Touch, a series of photographs of her peers from high school sharing where they were four years after graduation and what has influenced them to get to where they are then.
After graduating in 2015, Boyce helped spearhead a new community arts effort in her hometown. This led to her work with Bristol All Heart and then to her role as the Marketing & Events Assistant at The Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce. During this time, Boyce realized the power of bringing the arts and marketing together. She hasn’t looked back since.
After graduation, Cat held several positions, and recently landed a job as a Digital Product Manager at The Ad Council in New York City. Check her out on Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/catboyce/
