Among all the wonderful things I discovered under the teachings of Jon, one memory that stands out is a class called “Design in Nature.” Through this class he helped me to connect with the natural world and see it as not only being beautiful but part of design. A leaf transformed into color, form, patterns…a story…an experience. Design is a way to experience the world around you; it is part of everything. Jon taught me to see the world in a different way.
