    Lillybeth catered a large community Christmas event at the Mount Maunganui Salvation Army, she arrived with all equipment and was ready to go in a few short moments. I was busy elsewhere but had the most sublime pleasure seeing children run past with the look of pure delight in wearing one of Lillybeth's creations. Each child was treated as such precious individuals and they knew it. Lillybeth's talent and caring service was worth so much more than the actual fiancial cost. I highly recommend her.

Joyce also takes the time to teach the children different art techniques to help develop their skills. For anyone who loves art Young at Art Downunder is a great place to attend."
