Val can help you in a variety of ways. This process all starts with a FREE initial inquiry and verbal conversation over the phone or skype or other virtual options. It may be that you just need a short coaching session to review your work providing an outside perspective of your strengths and weaknesses, things to improve, things to discard, and advice on a project that you should focus on. You don't have to work with Val on that project, but that's a second option that she can customize something for you based on her innovative approach to creativity in design. You may feel you need a series of projects and may opt for one of Val's classes that are college level condensed for working virtually and/or in person if you choose to visit the retreat center.

A forth option is a completely customized package for your needs. Val has taught design at all levels from entering freshmen to graduating seniors in the major and non-majors for more than 20 years. She can assist in developing targeted assignments that will help expand your portfolio. After the consultation, she will develop a proposal for you that fits within your budget not only on the pocketbook but for your time to meet your goals.
