Kitty Dinners Illustration

Hello and welcome to my website…

I’m Katy Dynes, an illustrator specialising in book illustrations, teaching art workshops and painting murals. Over the coming months I’ll be adding more of what I’ve been up to, as well as re-posting some of my older work.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work and thank you for visiting!

..... Was delighted to be asked to sketch a quick illustration for the fab @jamiespetstore in Kettering.
A big thankyou to Aaron and all the staff at Jamie`s for looking after me throughout #kettfest a couple of weeks ago and all the team @kettfest_kettering for organising such a successful festival x

..... Is not a great one for having my photo taken but it`s not often I get to `pose` with a ginormous orange pencil (yes, it is standing on the floor) - so I was "persuaded"!

This one is for you, Polly, as promised..... Your pencil is being very well looked after and is very much at home in my studio!

Thankyou x
