Kezzia was able turn our vision into exactly what we had in mind, and she kept us on track with the right illustrative theme for the book when our ideas started to run wild. She worked collaboratively with us as we provided our inputs and worked creatively through the process together. We are really happy with the end result and have a book we are proud of. We have also been getting great feedback from our customers about the illustrations - "looks amazing!" is a phrase we hear a lot.
Shaaron Fedora - Author. PIPPA & Her Guardian Angel & JEMMA The Most Wondering Angel
As the writer of two children’s books, I agonized over each and every word - each word had to be just perfect. When that was done, I realized that visually, what I had was black words on white paper.
Then I discovered and met with Kezzia Crossley. Kezzia read my stories and soon after provided me with sketches of the three Angels whose stories I tell. I was thrilled with her visual interpretation, how she “got” them. She captures personality and emotion with a few strokes of her very creative paintbrush.
Kezzia is a pleasure to work with - a professional with immense talent. She is also flexible and always responsive to any ideas and suggestions I had.
Kezzia Crossley brought my books to life.

I'm so pleased with her work ethic, communication skills, and her ability to think outside the box while drawing inside lines. It was a great experience to work with her.
Yvonne Lamey - Author "KC Cracks the Code"
Lovely children's book about a boy fighting cancer and the 'bad cells' that cause Cancer. His imaginary friend takes him on a journey to discuss a possible cure... look out for a video game featuring this story as well !
"Kezzia Crossley was a joy to work with. Her artwork was just what I needed. The amazing thing is, we did it all with verbal, online discussion. It's as if she could read my mind! I would hope that you will be able to work with her. " Yvonne Lamey
Judith Jones Muchowski – Author “The Adventures of Kiki”
"My book is set in Botswana, and Kezzia captured the essence of the African landscape perfectly. As well, she worked patiently with me until we had the personalities of the two main characters, a bush baby (nagapie), and a little African boy, just perfect. She was a joy to work with, an excellent communicator, and willingly reworked illustrations if I requested it. She is extremely talented, and seemed to sense exactly what I wanted for my characters.
Thank you Kezzia for bringing my book to life. I look forward to working with you again soon."
Chrysie Shaw - Author "The Cat and the Gold Fish"
"Kezzia has been wonderful to work with, not only in producing the illustrations as promised, but also as a warm person to do business with. Everyone I have shown my book to has loved the illustrations. I think that something about them seems to tickle their inner child. "

We contact Kezzia at short notice for a pitch we were doing for a new contract. Kezzia was great to work with. Nothing was a problem and she went above and beyond to deliver. Her fresh thinking ideas and creative follow through really nailed it. In a short space of time Kezzia supplied some illustrations that articulated our creative pitch concept. Thanks Kezzia. We will certainly be working with you again.

Kezzia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am so pleased with the illustrations she has done for me.
She was responsible for illustrating a 32 page children’s book where the illustrations play a very key part. She did a fantastic job and produced a set of pictures with a variety of wonderful characters reflecting the words of the book beautifully. I loved the extra detail she put in, giving the pictures added depth and interest. Her style and creativity has really brought the book to life.
At all times Kezzia worked with great professionalism, flexibility and to high standards and with excellent communication skills.
Thank you Kezzia! And I look forward to working with you on future projects.
If you're looking for an illustrator, then you have to work with Kezzia. I love the characters she created for my children's book 'Double Barrel Jimmy'; they're wonderfully quirky, original and funny. I honestly think Kezzia may be a mind reader as her images could have been taken straight out of my head.
Kezzia is so talented and I can't wait to work with her again.
Kezzia is a fantastic professional to work with.
