Hello! I’m Katherine Tyson (née Herriman).
My aspiration is at the same time both simple and lofty: to weave the pleasantly strange in with the day-to-day and invite 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 beautiful curiosities to infuse daily life. Throughout my illustrations 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, Australia. I’m part of a coven of artists, called “Leaf Studios” – a wisteria ensnared brick-and-mortar shop and studio nestled in sleepy, leafy Kallista, east of Melbourne.
