ARTIST BIO

Julia Hutchinson is an illustrator and comics artist working out of the New York City area. Her work primarily consists of pen and ink drawings, watercolor paintings and digital collage combining the two.

Through her expressive visual storytelling, Julia points viewers to the wonder found in the everyday, respect for nature, and education as a means to self improvement. Julia approaches each project with dedication and enthusiasm, making sure clients are thrilled with the outcome.

She recently completed a post-baccalaureate residency at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR. Clients include Portland's Willamette Week and her work has appeared in mailings and billboards around her adopted hometown of Champaign, Illinois.

Julia enjoys birdwatching with her husband and revisiting mid 90’s video games. She one day hopes to open a rescue shelter for roosters who crow too much.
