Kay Julie Hutchings is a British fine artist and surface pattern designer living in Sweden.
She completed her Foundation 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 her interest in surface patterns. Kay has also studied Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts.
In her fine art paintings she works mostly with acrylic paints, creating artwork that combines the representational with the imaginary. Her art practice focuses predominantly on abstracts and minimalist botanicals, sometimes using elements of collage. You can read her artist statements here.
Kay also creates surface patterns through her label Kay Julie Designs. Inspired by her native and adopted countries and cultures, Kay creates striking patterns and images that celebrate English country gardens, Scandinavian folk art and design, and the beauty of the natural world.
