Your images are speaking to you. Can you hear what they are saying? This is where we will begin, our jumping off point, imagery you have already created.
Next step is how do you gain a fresh perceptive in this changing world? How do you express yourself in times of change, unrest, and insecurity?
Through exercises and assignments Laurie will help you find your new visual voice. It does mean getting out of your comfort zone, and yes, this is an inside job…..
Together let’s take the next step.
We are not going back, but we can go forward.
