What our customers say
  • We still smile when we see them.

    We have different tastes when it comes to art, so we had spent a lot of time looking for a perfect piece for our living room.  We were wanting something from a New Zealand artist so we were thrilled to come across Cathy’s art.  

     We saw her Tuatara print and fell in love with the bold design, clean lines and surprising level of detail.  We could tell the design and colours would work perfectly in our space.  When it arrived we were delighted with it, and we were so glad we followed the advice on Cathy’s website to go big.  

     We loved it so much we went back online and ordered another print.  White Heron looks perfect opposite Tuatara in our living space.  Months on we still smile when we see them.


  • Goodnight Mr Hornbill

    I'm a huge bird lover and we are blessed with having hornbills visit us frequently on our balcony here in Singapore.

    I have been looking for 7 years for the perfect hornbill print but couldnt find anything with a modern look. 

    The black and white of this design was just stunning and I knew that it would look amazing in large print.

    Everyone who visits our place is so impressed with our hornbill print and our kids say goodnight to Mr. Hornbill every night before bed - we couldn't be happier with how it has turned out. Love it!


  • Big parrot on the wall

    I was searching for a long time to find a picture for the wall in our living room. 

    When I saw the Kakapo picture, we decided to get the biggest print available.

    All of Cathy’s designs are lovely. They are so unique and they’ve got a lot of personality. Our three year old regularly has a chat with the ‘big parrot’ on the wall!
