What others have to say…

The illustrations and site-map that Kati has created for Kelmscott Manor are really very successful and everyone associated with the National Lottery Heritage Fund project was equally impressed with their clarity and the way in which the drawings of the Morris family members, birds and other characters work so well with the typography. She has made a delightful contribution to the Interpretation of the Manor and its outbuildings.

Kati went above and beyond the brief and delivered the project in a timely manner. She worked with us to find an outcome that really fitted what we were trying to achieve. We are very happy with the result!

Kati has been a pleasure to work with. Her dedication to the project has been consistent from the first minute to the last. She captured perfectly what the Old Fire Station stands for through her extensive research, unique way of seeing, beautiful colour palette and dreamy characters. We are overjoyed with the result!

We’re so lucky to be working with such a talented and curious illustrator! Kati’s talent is not just her delicate graphics, but also the wit and insight that she instills in them!
