D. D. Tyler (Diana Dee Tyler) is an American natural history artist who has been known for her strong design and fine, scientifically accurate detail. She illustrated 15 books on natural history, most for children for which she received numerous recognitions and awards. She designed and illustrated the first edition of “A Field Guide to the Whales, Porpoises and Seals of the Gulf of Maine.”
She created the Gulf of Maine educational posters of Whales, Fishes, Seabirds and Seals for Tyler Publishing which she operated for 39 years reproducing artwork on bookmarks, postcards, notecards and prints.
Over one hundred and fifty of Tyler’s designs have been reproduced on t-shirts by Liberty Graphics and sold around the world.
In 2014, Tyler donated the life time collection of her works in print (originals, printed pieces, supporting sketches and documents) to the Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas where it is currently being catalogued and archived. Tyler’s artwork at Spencer Research Library will be available for study by researchers, students and interested individuals.
D. D. continues to create art, splitting time between America and Australia.
