One of Cosmo's favourite places for a quick kip includes the tuffet - MY tuffet. However, he thinks it belongs to him - he behaves as if he's entirely oblivious of the fact that it's there so that I can put my feet up when seated. This is the pose he very often adopts just before he indulges in his habit of leaning against my legs and then trying to sprawl so he can gently push my legs away and get more room for himself. This is a fine art print of a sketchbook drawing in pen and ink using sepia ink. All gallery images copyright Katherine Tyrrell
I have a longstanding commitment to the value of drawing and use of dry media and am particularly interested in the subtleties of colour. I'm stimulated by repetition and variation - by the shapes and patterns I find in the natural world, the structure of objects and places and the way in which light impacts on both colour and form. In relation to places, my preference is to work from life wherever possible and I very much enjoy working "en plein air" and in public places.
Critical acclaim of my artwork focuses on my drawing skills and my use of colour. I exhibit in the UK and overseas and with various national art societies and I have work in private collections in the UK, Australia and the USA.
