Draw like a child; see like a master
As children, we draw freely and with great delight. About the time we reach 10, we compare our work with the three dimensional world around us. And we stop drawing. But, what we don’t know as adults, is that drawing, even like a child, helps us see things that aren’t immediately obvious as well as allowing us to communicate with others more quickly and more clearly.
All that is needed to build a rich visual vocabulary for communication are the images we used as children and our abandoned ability to create additional child like images. In this talk, we will explore a few simple techniques to start drawing and sharing again, as children, with freedom and delight. What you do with this remembered skill is boundless… and up to you.

In 2007, she attended the first International VizThink Conference and recognized the power of an abandoned skill set in simple drawings. Since 2007, she has brought her discovery to audiences around the world, teaching people to draw again, with great delight. Sometimes, she even has old crayons in her pockets.
