"Deb is an outstanding illustrator whom I've known since 2011 when she started contracting to Edumaxi Ltd as the illustrator for the Te Reo Singalong series. Her exceptional creative ability to work remotely, understanding of change requests and overall professional approach make her a pleasure to work with..."

                 Madelize Bekker Educational Consultant at Edumaxi Ltd


“I have commissioned Deborah Hinde to do a range of colour and line illustrations for a number of books over the last five or so years. Deb is great to work with. She understands and works to the brief, her illustrations are always spot on and she never misses a deadline. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."
