Amy Hutchings is a printmaker, mural artist and artist facilitator based in Bristol. Her practice incorporates silkscreen print, etching and spray paint. Recent works have been shown at the Royal West of England Art Academy 170th Open and within exhibition Also Artists. She helped Trinity Bristol secure funding to save Jacob Wells Baths, a community asset in her neighbourhood, designing artwork to drive public support. She runs workshops with refugees and asylum seekers at Spike Print Studio, is artist in residence for the University of Bristol Resilience Through Nature project, works as Art Facilitator for the RWA with SEN+D school students and runs creative workshops for dementia sufferers and elderly participants. She believes art is for everyone and is passionate about enabling the visual voice of others.
Amy celebrates hand-made techniques and the quirks of process that come from traditional methods of working. She loves to draw – her ideal day involves translating drawings onto another material, injecting colour and texture and being immersed in the making. She is a huge fan of descriptive line, abstract colour and pattern. She loves biscuits.
