Karen Daye-Hutchinson is a multifaceted Belfast artist whose work combines elements of both crafts and fine arts. After graduating in Fine Arts at the University of Ulster in 1988, she developed her art in jewelry-making, printing, painting, and sculpture. In 1992, she opened a retail shop Coppermoon specialized in arts and crafts, where she sold and exhibited her work and that of other artists. From 1993 to the present day she has regularly received awards, e.g. HRH Prince of Wales Gold Medal (1992) and from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (2014, 2017, 2018). Over the years, she has exhibited in Ireland, Europe, and the United States. She is currently a selected member of the prestigious Prism Print International and director trustee and treasurer of Belfast Print Workshop.
Fabrice Mourlon and Karen Daye-Hutchinson have known each other for twenty years and have met regularly in Belfast over that period. This allowed the interviewer to follow the various steps in the development of Karen Daye-Hutchinson’s work and involvement in other activities such as retailing and mentoring other artists. In some aspects, Karen’s work follows in the tradition of William Morris’s “Arts and Crafts” movement as she is both a maker and an artist and expresses herself through various media: jewelry, printing, painting, sculpture.
