Katherine Tyrer, Illustrator & Designer

I am a freelance artist and illustrator, based in Sevenoaks, near London, with a B.A. (First Class Hons.) in Art History and a BTEC diploma in Fine Art.  I began drawing and painting as a child, my art dealer parents encouraging me, but also helpful and honest critics, to help me keep developing my skills from an early age.  I was inspired by the art they collected, and learned to draw from observation of our family pets, and the wonderful antique paintings around me.   

I was taught to paint in watercolour by partner’s late mother, who went to the Royal Academy, and was a wonderful art teacher and artist.  

My original hand drawn sketches and paintings, as well as other products featuring my designs, are available for purchase through the online store.  You will find original dog paintings for sale and original animal and wildlife illustrations and artwork. 

You will find examples of food illustration and watercolour illustrations of people and places.  I can help you build your brand or business with unique bespoke artwork for products, packaging, branding, website design and pattern design.  I also accept orders for private commissions, providing beautiful artwork for weddings, party invitations and events. 

You will find some examples of my pet portraiture here, as well as advice on how to place a commission and contact me for hand drawn portrait prices.

I have worked with companies and retailers to produce custom artwork and welcome enquiries regarding licensing or illustration projects.  I was the illustrator behind Hudson and Middleton’s best-selling dog and cat mug range.  I also offer wholesale prices for goods on my website to retailers, including greetings cards.

I hope you will enjoy visiting my website.  Please contact me if you have any questions or you’d like to work with me.

Thank you!
