“The work assigned to Tina was a personal piece designed to celebrate a friends birthday. Her ability to conceptualise broad ideas from a brief and transform these into creative precision is nothing short of phenomenal. She has created a piece of priceless art for the intended receiver, which no doubt has been cherished and loved due to its personal nature woven through the piece via detailed illustration cues.
Through the whole process Tina had an open communication approach, which ensured we agreed with her creative direction and that the final design exceeded our expectations.
Any future projects be it personal or for business Tina will definitely be on the top of the list for design of creative and communicative art pieces that can evoke positive thought and emotion”

“Tina is an amazingly talented woman that I met on social media by chance. Her grasp of how art works in a business sense is a bonus to My Other Kitchen, especially working in a food environment where engaging the creative mind is imperative to us in order to make the business message relevant to food producers.
The Food Artist has now become an integral part of our greater network and found new opportunities with other service providers in the same environment. We, at My Other Kitchen, are incredibly pleased to be associated with such a talented artist and an articulate and astute business woman.”
— Jane Del Rosso, My Other Kitchen
“Working with Tina was an absolute joy! She’s organised, professional, punctual and a brilliant communicator. I’ve worked with many designers over the years and the level of customer service Tina offers her clients is up there with the best-of-the-best. I loved how she kept me regularly in the loop and never missed a deadline. Best of all, the final work was an absolute delight. We’ve had so much great feedback from clients about it already. Well worth the investment. Thanks Tina.”
