Kitty Dinners Illustration

Hello and welcome to my new look 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!

Morning everyone!
I just wanted to say how ridiculoualy excited I am that 5 of my designs have been accepted for the fantastic @wraptious 2020 competition!
(I even have some of my dictionary images featuring on their British made, vegan-suede, eco friendly cushions too!!)
Please, if you are on FB, do take a look (details on the image, please search for Katy Dynes) ... and.... I'm always grateful for any likes and shares!
Thankyou!

Thankyou @mstraccia for reminding me to actually *start* my #folktaleweek illustrations!
Yesterday's prompt was 'birth' and for me, this illustration had to involve two of my favourite things-- trees and scratchy pen!
I bet these guys have seen a few things..... and could tell a few tales, if only we'd listen!

Yippee!!
Another commission happily received!
This one, a family portrait in bird form on a piece of my lovely raggy edged birch bark paper!
I love that the bark just makes the colours sing!

Even on a gloomy, breezy lock down Tuesday, I love the view from my studio window.
I can't believe that in November, I've got a waving delicate pink flowered woodland lily (unbelievably, discovered as a 'sorry stalk' from a garden centre's reduced section at the beginning of the year), my colourful calibrachoa (million bells) is still on full flower.....And the last few leaves of my peach tree are hanging on in there!
Anything for a smile!
