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!

Was a wee bit busy last week...... I've made 4 of these illustrated one off textile pieces (there are foxes, a hare, birds and an autumnal landscape), which you can now find at the fab @mlvjc in Olney, Bedfordshire.
I love experimenting with different materials and am always thrilled to be given sample fabrics, vintage bits and bobs and lovely preloved swatches!

Hi everyone......
I've just arrived to the @justacard 's indie week campaign! Only 2 days late!
So I'll try and condense the last 2 days campaign' prompts' into the below!
Well..... This is me, Katy..... Proudly sporting my @justacard pin badge on my favourite bag!
This bag goes with me everywhere (partly because I'm too manic to ever swap bags and partly because it has the largest number of internal pockets for all my arty bitsnbobs!)
I work as illustrator and workshop provider and just love what I do!
I discovered the @justacard team as I make handmade cards too, which I sell in local galleries, shops and emporiums..... And I can't tell you how important it has been and is, to get the message out there!
I try and buy from as many independents and artisans as I can......there is a wonderful wealth of talent and creativity out there..... Just waiting to provide YOU with that special, unique, original gift.
Come and see!!
A big shout out to some of my super local independents for all their support! @inheavenathome, @wollastonhomeandcrafts, @mlvjc, @beckworthemporium, @hygge_oakham and @madeinbedford
