Kieren Dutcher Illustration
Artist: Kieren Dutcher
Holiday Sales? Yes
Work: My artwork is inspired by the beautiful California landscape, folk art and COLOR. I love to paint the small things I notice and that bring me happiness – a beautiful flower, bird, pattern or texture. I hope it makes you happy, too. My work is printed locally on greeting cards, and art prints. I also carve linoleum blocks, which are silkscreened onto cotton tea towels. I sometimes make pins and stickers of my work as well.
About: I grew up in Oakland in a family of makers. I earned a BFA at CCAC, later an MA in Art Education. I taught art to kids for many years – now I’m in my studio, working with adult artists at NIAD(niadart.org), or teaching workshops. My first picture book, ‘Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes: Stories to Share and Sing’ (Tuttle. 2010) won ‘Best Books of the Year’ from the Chinese American Library Association award , a new edition published in 2018. Highlights Magazine published ‘Spider’s Christmas Gift’, December 2020. I sell my paintings, prints, greeting cards, scarves and tea towels on Etsy, and at craft/art sales and shops. My work is in private collections and two hospitals: Sutter (Van Ness campus, SF) and Kaiser (Pediatric Behavioral Health, Petaluma, CA). One of my prints is on TV! (Council of Dads, NBC) My work has been published in Uppercase Magazine, Highlights Magazine, and Edible East Bay among others.
