The Story: Julia Hutchinson has always been an artist and a maker.
In 2018, Julia and her family moved to beautiful Colorado Springs, CO, where she fulfilled her dream of opening her own brick and mortar store! The Heartshake Studios flagship shop features a curated selection of gifts and home decor, as well as Julia’s own art, handcrafted goods, and vintage wares.
Julia's work is inspired by the colors, flora, and fauna of the Southwest. A few of her favorite things are flowering cacti, tropical houseplants, foxes, pink sunsets over the mountains, and colorful vintage handwoven textiles. Julia mostly paints with gouache, though oil paint was her first love. She loves to craft with natural materials and has a tendency to add lots of color and metallics to everything she creates.
