Dan: I was extremely excited knowing I was getting a custom splitboard from my wife for a wedding present. Kate created a one of a kind for top sheet for me that included everything I love from mountains and snowboarding to boats and the ocean. I didn’t know how it looked until the day before the wedding and it is the best top sheet I have ever seen! I couldn’t be happier and now as I’m skinning up to my next line I’ll be able to look at an amazing piece of art.
I reached out to Kate with the idea of a custom crest, and although she had not made one before, she was game! John and I gave her some ideas from Pinterest & picked a few of her pieces that stood out to us, as well as notes about ourselves.
Kate sent us back 3 rough drafts of different ideas/styles, and we loved aspects of each one. We gave her feedback and then she combined them to create an amazingly unique family crest that we hope to pass on.
We had it etched onto a wood slice from John’s family farm, as well as printed onto recycled paper post-cards as thank-you notes. We adore it, and anyone who sees it falls in love with Kate’s work! Thank you Kate!
I looked through her portfolio and fell I love with her mountains designs, I moved to Whistler to be in the mountains, I love hiking and backpacking – it’s where I feel most at home. I was planning on getting a tattoo of the mountains and it was a no brainer to ask Kate to design it. Working with Kate was simple and easy; I showed her what I liked about her other pieces, gave her an outline of what I wanted and what she designed for me was better then I could have ever imagined. I now carry Kate’s artwork – the mountains, with me everywhere.
