‘Kate has worked with us as an advisor since the beginning of the Wattle Living journey.

Combining extensive industry experience as a consultant with practical skills from starting and scaling her own businesses, Kate has provided invaluable advice across multiple touchpoints from design & branding to strategic planning & marketing’

Ryan Lawson – Wattle Living


‘Kate is a curator and enabler who brings out the best in those she rallies around her.

She is meticulously organised, considerate and a great communicator. As a creative, she leaves no detail unconsidered and her
dedication to her aesthetic makes her presentations flawless and inspiring’

Yvonne Moxhan – Vivid Ideas


I have had the pleasure of working with Kate on two projects, the first was for the branding of my art consultancy. Kate was spot on in interpreting my brief and recommending marketing solutions.

My colleagues in the arts industry and business partners have all been suitably impressed. I had no hesitation in briefing Kate on a project for a contemporary arts festival in Byron Bay. The brand positioning will no doubt impress potential investors!

Lisa Cowan – The Art Connector


‘Kate has brought about invaluable, long term improvements to the organization and day to day running of the business, helping to streamline systems in areas such as production, sales, marketing, and communications. These changes have led to a direct increase in turnover and profitability for Dress Up.

On a more personal note, Kate has inspired higher confidence, energy and pride in my work, and has helped me define my role as a designer and business owner. I cannot recommend Kate’s consultancy with high enough regard’

Stephanie Downy – Dress Up


Kate is a fantastic businesswoman. She is creative, dedicated and on the money. I have worked as a photographer with Kate in different capacities for almost 10 years, and every project we’ve worked on has been consistently flawless.

Recently Kate and her team helped rebrand my identity, and they did a fantastic job. A very talented bunch of creative women.

Cybele Malinowski – Photographer and film-maker
