I’m so grateful to find your incredible art! Kawakawa is special to me and love the holes. Your Kawakawa sculptural embroidery will be in good company in my home. Thanks Michele.

WOW, love your new pieces. I have purchased the pink seaweed as was instant love.
LOVE my sculptural daisy!!! It is stunning and Mum's commission piece of the white sculptural coral is perfect too.
They are all so beautiful.
Have a great day.
Take care, Sam.

After an exceptionally busy few days at work I've only just opened the parcel and met my mum's Kea for the first time!He's marvellous, thank you so much. So lifelike he looks like he's just about to have a go at your windscreen wipers!
As soon as I laid my eyes on the artwork I was captured by it’s beauty, and then also by it’s intricate level of detail. It is as you say truly stunning. He looks as though he has a little (whimsical) smile on his face and has a character all of his own. I am sure it will be one of my most prized possessions.
Incredibly fine, meticulous work to re-create a piece of jetsam that we might just step over on the beach. I love my new seaweed embroidery.
It was lovely to chat to you about your work and your process Cathy Jane, I'm so happy to have a little piece of yours to call my own.
It bought tears to my eyes it was so lovely. Thank you so much Cathy.
