A big thank you for such a well planned, organized, FUN, creative, high ENERGY WORKSHOP!
I’ve never worked so hard & been so productive. AWESOME, AWESOME!!! There was such a high level of artist. I was honored to be a part of the week.
My thoughts are too hard to express on paper. This workshop was beyond my wildest dreams. The talent & knowledge you generously shared, your home, hospitality was exceptional. My dream would be for every year, this very group would come back here. Call it, “SAME TIME, SAME PLACE,” and we can learn more & see where we have gone, learned, accomplished and be together again.
Everything about this workshop has been wonderful. The people, the education, the food, the setting, just perfect. I am so inspired by this workshop. Above all, it has influenced me to let go of my fear. I truly feel ready to take flight.
This workshop was an incredible journey and one that really can’t end because each of us has taken flight. We were filled with creativity, instruction, friendship, and encouragement; all of which will keep us growing and flying.
1. Amazing people who all shared so much from the three of you, the participants and all of the models and assistants.
2. Introduction to new techniques and ways of working.
3. An amazing venue.
