Hello! I’m Katherine Tyson (née Herriman).
My aspiration is at the same time both simple and lofty: to build the ladders which allow daydreamers to keep their heads in the clouds. My acrylic paintings and ink drawings are harvested from an infatuation with colour and a yearning for the pleasantly strange to infuse daily life. Throughout my illustration art I let imaginary creatures run rampant in delightfully improbable situations, inviting the viewer to weave a story.
My art studio is nestled in the frequently foggy hills of the Dandenong Ranges, just to the east of Melbourne, Australia.
