“Kate is the consummate professional. She knows the business and knows how to bring out the greatest parts of your business from within you. More importantly, she brings creativity, innovation and style to each piece of art and her approach. She does great work for me and I am frequently asked, “Who did that?” That is why I proudly share a testimonial. I have also seen how she has worked with a number of my clients and can see their new awareness and how their understanding has grown.

I’ve heard numerous extraordinary reviews from participants of many classes. She understands and teaches a holistic approach to marketing and the need for consistency in the message, across the numerous platforms, and over time. She has been a leader in advocating the importance, the criticality, of visuals in your message – way ahead of its recent growth in popularity. If or when you are ready to re-brand, or want a different approach, Kate can help you through the process and lead you beyond your expectations.”

Presenting the canvas to the Tanzanian School “…I will be going to a Board meeting of the Bunting Institute and I shall tell R— B—– about you. I do hope that you apply but I know that you realize that there are so many applicants that you may not win the kupie doll. But as far as I am concerned you just belong there. When you do apply, I will certainly recommend you.”

She not only gives you great value but teaches you how to see so that you actually have an enhanced interpersonal ability at your disposal.

“I commend the work of Kate Brown-Wing of Brown-Wing Studios to you without reservation. Her work is “exquisite” (to quote myself). She does illustrations for all kinds of books, ebooks, websites, etc. You name it, she can do it! Since almost everything is transmitted electronically these days, she can do work for anyone anywhere. It helps that she’s also very nice and has a high sense of integrity! Check her out! She is a seasoned illustrator with very impressive experience with institutions you will recognize!”
