a message from the artist

Katie Stabana

Hi! Welcome to my website, I am so happy that you are here. I am a nature artist, specialising in flower and plant preservation. I preserve in latex which gives my work the unique amber colour. I hope you are able to find everything you need including wall art, necklaces and more. If you want to hear about new collections and a bit more from me then do join the mailing list and follow me on social media. Things are a little slower around here at the moment as I’m busy growing a baby! Baby is due in December so I’ll still be working into the autumn and I’m open to take on new commissions until the end of August.

About me

Preserved by Katie

I live in Derby with my husband, our cat Boaz and by the end of 2023 our our first child. I work from my makeshift home studio (our tiny spare room). I graduated from the university of Derby in 2016 having studied Creative Expressive Therapies, it was during my final year that I started creating my latex disks of preserved nature. You will find some images of my 3rd year exhibition project of my wall of 1100+ disks in my gallery.<br /> After university I started to preserve my friend’s wedding flowers and I preserved my own in 2018. Since leaving my office job in 2019, I have had the privilege of preserving many many wedding flowers and the honour of working with funeral flowers as well. Running this business for the past 4 years has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, it turns out I don’t naturally have the mind of a business women, but an artist. However it has also been the greatest joy and learning experience, my work has progress and improved more than I could have imagined. Getting to create my own art work as a job is truly a dream and I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most incredible people.
