Who? Kianne Patrice Hutchinson, a Jamaican photographer, digital artist, wall art creator, and lover of all things creative.

The buzz... Hutchinson's photographic journey spans animal photography (“WOOFtography”), architecture, black and white, portraiture, corporate and fine art. She merges these pieces with her photos to create a modern, unique and synergistic blend, often utilising decidedly Jamaican elements. Augmented Reality technology is incorporated into some of her pieces to add another layer of interest and engagement. Wall art is created and printed primarily on aluminum although other options are also used.

Her 'aha' moment came... whilst on a trip to Costa Rica. “I visited an art gallery... being surrounded by these works of contemporary art in all colours and sizes, the feeling was surreal, like coming home on a deep and fundamental level; a spiritual experience. The lady who worked there began talking to me and at the end of the conversation, became quite emotional. She urged me, with tears in her eyes, to continue on this creative journey. Words can't quite describe what that moment felt like, but it helped to confirm this work as a part of my contribution to a bigger picture.”

Milestones... Hutchinson's work was featured in the September 2018 issue of German photography magazine Pictures Das Foto-Magazin in which she proudly spoke of the beautiful island of Jamaica, full of artistic inspiration and vibrant people.

She was (last September) the featured artist at the Kingston Creative Art Walk.

Participated in the JCDC and Jamaica Photography Society exhibition “A Celebration of Photography”, which was held at the Jamaica Conference Centre November 25, 2018 to March 3, 2019.

KiannePatrice has been selected as a part of the second cohort of the Development Bank of Jamaica's IGNITE grant for business acceleration. This grant is awarded to businesses which have a component of innovation and speaks to the unique nature of the work created.

She has been invited as a featured artist at the INDIGGO Meet and Mingle March 14, 2019 and Conference March 23, 2019.
