About The Artist : Kae Hutchens
I love making art, whether it is colorful florals with crisp, bold, tattoo-style linework or crazy, abstracts. I have a varied approach to painting and drawing, and it truly is a coin flip on whether I have sketched out 20 thumbnails or if I've just gone straight to canvas with a brush or palette knife! I am a fan of paintings that look like paintings, so you will frequently find heavy brush strokes in my work. My favorite mediums are pen and ink and acrylic paint, though I do occasionally play with watercolor, markers, graphite, and oils.
I am greatly inspired by nature and photography of nature. My faith drives a lot of my abstract works, as do stories and poetry. My favorite color schemes are cool blues, purples, greys, and muted greens.
I have been tattooing since 2005, and my favorite subject is flowers - of any kind. I am currently working at Tattoo Kaiju in Bloomington, IN and I work by appointment only, check out the Contact page to inquire about consultations and appointments.
When I'm not in the studio, I am enjoying spending time with my husband and son, playing video or board games, drinking coffee, or reading on the couch with my three fluffy cats.
I am currently taking classes and working on rounding out my art education, as I'd like to do illustrations for children's books, RPG's, and maybe even video game concept art.
