It was great to work with Willa at our UGG event. There was a queue all night for the live illustration and guests were delighted with their portraits.

We were thrilled by the response from influencers to our hands-on, Make It Yours customisation workshop; meaning that the event was oversubscribed. Willa was flexible and professional, making for a great, relaxed and successful event.
The hand-painting pop-up proved to be really popular with customers and Willa’s confident and friendly approach meant that she was a joy to work with. We’d happily recommend her talent and professionalism.
