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!

.... Is chuffed to be in such good company with this incredible group of artists, in an exhibition celebrating 50 years of the preservation trust set up for Lamport Hall.
The exhibition runs from now until 22nd August on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am-3pm, where you can not only enjoy this exhibition (inspired by the sights and sounds in and around Lamport) in the stable block, but the house, gardens and lovely cafe too!

.... Is truly thrilled to now reveal my super-sized Shaun the Sheep sculpture (called "counting sheep")!
He is only one of 12 Shaun`s to be found at the gorgeous, @tattonpark, a National Trust property and estate in Cheshire.
The trail started on 29th March and runs until June.
I can`t wait to go and see him in situ (and find all the others!!)

With huge thanks to @laughrin for the photo and @wildinart x
