Katy Tanis began her illustration career working in the fashion industry. Her fascination with pattern started as a toddler when she proclaimed her favorite color was “stripes.”
Katy currently resides in San Francisco, CA but is often off wandering the world. She enjoys visiting places with inspiring crafts, warm ocean waves or exotic jungle creatures. Her colorful artwork celebrates the world’s wildlife. She has a soft spot for quirky and unusual animals.
She likes to think she is one of “les nabis” who was born a century too late. She also draws inspiration from mid century illustration and Japanese art.
