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!

I was so excited to be asked into a local school to work with 36 pre-schoolers on a project celebrating the children’s duck eggs that were ‘just about to hatch’.

..... Introducing Rhea and Molly.... Aka "the Splashers"!

These 2 lovely ladies are fun, outgoing, very dedicated to their work....... And are a huge part of my fab sponsorship team @parkholidaysuk!!

They told me they both have a couple of hidden talents: one is a whizz at mimicking accents and the other can make a very realistic race car noise (I can verify this!)

I'll leave you to guess who does what!

#followthatduck Trail goes LIVE tomorrow!

Had a nanosecond at the weekend to sit, sketch and just be, in the most beautiful open gardens.

This was my view at the time, just before an influx of wonderful, enthusiastic garden lovers arrived.......

And.....
This is Clive's intrepid explorer grand-daughter, Sophie.

She's a happy go lucky young person, with an exuberant, curious, joyous outlook on life.

Sophie is sporting her favourite swimming cozzie and just loves discovering the magic in everything.

Clive is fiercely protective of her, as Sophie's (dis) abiliies are misunderstood.

Sophie's motto is:
" kindness and acceptance are everything".

Just 1 week to go before #followthatduck2022 is launched in Hastings and Rother next Friday!!
