Hello and welcome to my site! I'm Kay Julie Hutchings, a British artist and surface pattern designer living in Sweden.
I create predominantly watercolour paintings that are strongly influenced by my love of Scandinavian folk art and I also make surface patterns through my label Kay Julie Designs. Inspired by my native and adopted countries and cultures, I produce repeat patterns that celebrate English country gardens, Nordic design, and the beauty of the natural world.
I completed my foundation studies in art and design at the Kent Institute of Art & Design and went on to study fashion and textile design at Ravensbourne University London, which ignited my love of surface patterns. I have also studied Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts.
