Thank you Michelle Kennedy

Michelle Kennedy’s “Creative Composite Images” was inspiring.  Those who attended were in awe of Michelle’s creative mind.  Michelle demonstrated how she used many images to painstakingly create a work .  She very generously shared her ideas and encouraged everyone to “have a go”.  We all had an exercise to do to demonstrate that in fact, each of us has imagination.   This was a great presentation and Michelle has sent 3 images to share with you. As you can see, Michelle takes meticulous care and pride in her work.
