Said "I’ve never worked with an illustrator before when it comes to website creations, but Kim has been wonderful to work with in laying out her artwork precisely as I need it to fit into spaces here and there on the website pages. I was a little worried at first not being digital graphics, but Kim saw any need I had and came through successfully without one complaint or one “can’t do it”. She’s even gone so far as to present me with layers of her work that I can freely move around or to use elsewhere onto other pages. These are paintings and she’s layered them for me!!! That is a HUGE asset to me while I build and is basically just the right “digital” that I need so that I can do additional layering within Photoshop! Totally impressed! I highly recommend Kim not only for her beautiful illustrations and great talents but also to use her work as your website’s major focal points. Your webmaster will find her very easy to work with rather than having to work around. Such a delight!" to Kim Wilson Brandt

Said "We hired Kim to illustrate a children's safety book and she was terrific. She was able to capture exactly what we had envisioned and went way beyond our expectations to help us through this process. We are now going to begin the second book and look forward to continuing with this series. Kim, you are wonderful! Thank you. Brenda and Natalie" to Kim Wilson Brandt
