Artist’s Statement

Non-Obligatory Requests

Though her work is in the public domain, Catherine still has some non-obligatory requests for people seeking to use her work:

  • Attribution: Catherine always appreciates being attributed.
  • Similar license: Wherever possible, Catherine requests that derivatives of her work be free to reproduce and free to make derivative works from (even if they are not necessarily public domain).
  • Non-exploitation: In the rare case that someone makes a significant amount of money off her work, Catherine requests to be given her share.

Again these are not obligations, just good things to do with any artist. Truly exploitative people are obviously just going to ignore the above requests, but Catherine has put them there for people who don’t want to be like that.
