My new website is now up and running so please go to www.ktywest.uk (no .co.uk in this one).
I am a wildlife and pet portrait artist living and working in Skipton, a market town on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales (known as God’s own country) in the UK.
All animals and wildlife have held a fascination for me since a very young age and I love capturing a moment or an expression. Sometimes it will be typical, sometimes it will show a different side to their nature. I work mainly in pastels and coloured charcoals since they produce such beautifully velvety noses, fur and ears they are ideal for painting animals and wildlife.
“My family and friends say that there are now two Skyes in my house – one on the wall created by Kath and one sitting by my side.
But I know that when Skye is no longer sitting by my side, she will live on in her portrait.
Well done Katy.”
