Client Testimonials

“The best decision I made in 2021 was to retain Catherine Toews owner of Tulip Tree Creative to create my Shopify E-commerce website. I was looking for someone who could speak in terms that a senior like myself could understand and a small business like mine could afford. So many web designers are out of reach for a small business but Catherine’s contract was extremely comprehensive and delivered on all levels. Her graphic design skills brought out the very best in my social media posts and stories always on time and on budget. I highly recommend Catherine Toews and Tulip Tree Creative to aid you in moving into the E-Commerce world.”

Pamela Mason

“I loved working with Catherine on the redesign of my website. Catherine is an incredible listener, a practical thinker, professional, patient, flexible, responsive and very well organized. Catherine’s artistic background and creative energy add much value to any project. Catherine intuitively understood my vision and executed everything on my wish list.  I now have a website that turned out better than I could imagine and I love it. She is a joy to work with and I look forward to more collaborative projects.”
