I love your work. Your CV is impressive too. ; ) Perhaps under  
Portfolio Galleries/Multivalency Lectures the images could be  
arranged to alternate the white backgrounds with the colored ones to  
show them off a bit more prominently? I agree with what Britt says,  
that it's not really clear that the images on the website were  
created by you. : )

Classes are (almost) always helpful. I'd take one to see the level of  
instruction and pace. Even if your skills are more advanced than the  
other students, there's always something new to learn! And networking  
possibilities as well. : )
