What our Students Say

“My “Designer Glasses” have been activated with blinkers, bells and “aha”-bulb to start with.”  

Lianne Reyes Brennan – USA

“I am really impressed at the course you have provided and how you have managed to impart so much knowledge and wisdom from the experience you have gained over the years and yet you have also made the course so wonderfully personal and fun. I will admit that I am slowly starting to look at everyday objects, rooms, layouts etc through new eyes. I am trying to learn as you suggested by critiquing and I do find that I ask myself why a lot now.”

Lisa – Australia
