“I reached out to Katrina to see if she can work on an original piece of art I wished to use for our holiday cards. They were of our dogs, two whom crossed the rainbow bridge and one who my husband and I adopted earlier this year. Every year we have a batch of holiday cards with our dogs but we never got to do one with Bartles, as he was only with us for a short 7 months until he passed. Instead of using an old picture of him, we thought to have all three of our dogs featured this year.
I knew that only Katrina would be able to capture their faces and the little details that made them uniquely them. And she did not disappoint. And every step through the whole process, Katrina kept in touch with progress and made sure I was content with how everything looked, even the angel halos and mistletoes and lettering. And while getting the expressions and details was important, working with a person who cares about the meaning of the card, something you can’t capture easily with a stroke of a brush, was important for me as well. Thank you so much, Katrina, for these very special holiday cards. They are by far our favorite.”
“For my mum’s 60th birthday, I wanted to get her something really special. So I eventually decided on getting a piece of art commissioned for her, inspired by my late grandmother. So I sent Katrina my short brief of what I wanted; birds of paradise flowers with a quote of a song my grandma would always sing of back home (Trinidad).
So Katrina took that small brief and turned it into something truly amazing. The detail of her work was amazing, the texture of the flowers jumped right off the page. She sent me images of parts of the design as she worked, so I got to see the work build gradually. I only had to give her two feedback messages (which were so minor).
The best thing about working Katrina was her professionalism, attention to detail and imagination. We have very few photos of my grandma. And I know my mum and the rest of the family will truly treasure this piece of work forever.”
