"They are so special and they are a credit to you - the attention to detail is impressive and the quality is outstanding. You capture the essence of each orca’s individual character and that is essential when trying to explain how each one has a personality as well as physical form.
I really love what you are doing to spread the word"

“My three year old daughter loves her Orca Originals Pod so much, they sleep with her every night. She has become very interested in these animals from playing with them, and as a result has learned so much about the lives and social needs of real whales.”
“My Orca Originals are both adorable and capture the vision of my characters amazingly well. They were lovingly crafted and I cannot stress how much I am grateful for them! I highly recommend Orca Originals to any orca lover wanting a handmade, unique gift!”
“I sell Orca Originals at various animal behaviour events I organise. They are always very popular and stimulate some great questions and interest in the plight of orca in captivity - so vital for changing public opinion on this issue.”
