Katherine Tyrer, Illustrator

I am a freelance illustrator and pet portrait artist. With a Diploma in Fine Art, I paint in a traditional style in a variety of media (predominantly watercolour with or without pen and ink for my illustrations, but also pastel and acrylics for portraiture and other projects).

I sell original paintings and drawings online through my website. Many of these artworks are based on animals, which are the inspiration behind many of my paintings, including dogs, cats, horses, farm animals and birds. I have produced a range fine bone china mugs, greetings cards and prints featuring my designs, which I also sell online through my website. My work is also on sale at a local gallery (Sundridge Gallery).

Over the years, I have been commissioned to paint many different types of dogs, horses and cats (even the odd sheep)! Many of these are commissioned as gifts for animal lovers, so the build-up to Christmas is a very busy time for me! These portraits obviously make a special and lasting gift and it is such a joy for me to help people to remember their much-loved pets and to capture their likeness and character.

I am increasingly interested in illustrating food and objects. I can be commissioned to produce bespoke works of art for commercial applications or other projects which require artwork.
