I am always happy to discuss commissions of any size or type. I have worked on projects from large, commercial displays to individual, personal frames inspired by memories and favourite species. Prices start at around £250 for a 22 x 22cm frame and increase depending on the size and the complexity of the sculptures.
I usually ask a few questions to begin with to get an idea of the display you are looking for, any particular species or themes you have in mind and establish what your budget is. I will then draw out some ideas for you to chose from before finalising the design. Once you are happy with it I will begin making. I start by sourcing the materials needed, then draw out templates to make the sculptures from. Once the sculptures have been made I send photos to make sure you are happy with them before I mount them in their custom made frame.
A commission can take anything from 4 weeks to several months depending on the size and details put in. If you have a date you would like the piece to arrive by, this can be taken into account during the design process to make sure it arrives on time. As some times of the year are busier than others its always best to get in contact in advance to make sure I have plenty of time to get the details right.
I have created collections for public and private collectors all over the world including, Sotheby's Diamond's, Conde Nast, Oroton, the University Children's Hospital of Iowa, Liverpool University, and others. Here are some of my favourite commercial and private commissions to have worked on over the years.
"They look amazing and we’re more than pleased. You really did a fantastic job and captured the subjects beautifully, which is no mean feat considering you’ve never seen most of the subjects in real life"
"Kate produced a unique one off item for my wife's 40th. It is quite simply stunning! Throughout Kate was very thorough and approachable...I cannot recommend her and her work enough"
