My name is Katy Hayward, and I am a full time artist & tattoo artist based on the Tutukaka Coast, Whangarei. I contacted Kate recently for some help & advice in regards to copyright in my art, and I could not have asked for a more personable and caring experience. She answered all the queries I had and made me feel reassured and supported straight away after a worrisome time for me. As an artist, Kate really helped my confidence with moving onwards and upwards in my career, I can’t thank her enough for this reason and will continue to recommend her to others.

"I contacted Kate recently to advise on some contract and copyright questions and wish I'd talked to her years ago. I found her personable and easy to work with, and really great at breaking things down clearly and practically. Kate's insight was so greatly appreciated, and I always felt like I was in good hands — couldn't recommend enough!"
