I have worked on many special commissions from statement pieces for private collectors to bespoke exhibition displays for national museums and galleries. If you have an idea you’d like to discuss, please get in touch via my contact page.

Everyone in my lab is a huge fan of Annette’s work, so when we learned we were moving into a new lab space, we inquired with her to see if she was willing to make a commissioned piece that we could display in the lab. Annette kindly agreed and we could not be happier with the piece. It’s a dramatic copper etching of the common Eastern bumble bee (Bombus impatiens), a bee that we regularly work with to understand how various stressors impact pollinator health. It grabs your attention and is a constant reminder to anyone in the lab about why we do our science — to better understand how we can protect these wonderful creatures.
