Talks

Your talk was both touching and intelligent…You gave a deep and truly sentient lecture and took us along behind your eyes and into your heart…You are excellent – soft, strong, vulnerable and tenacious.     - Roberta Earle, about Layerings: A Glimpse of Southeast Asia


For the past 10 years Celia has embraced opportunities for public speaking. Whether about her exhibits, her artist's story, or a particular body of work, at the root of her talks are her reflections and insights about the practice of paying attention and the revelatory nature of seeing.

Celia clearly loves connecting with her audiences. Whether you are interested in her chosen medium of photography, or in her various subjects that range from sea glass to an industrial plant; or whether you are interested in an artist's journey, or in developing a more acute awareness about yourself or the world around you, you will be met with her enduring enthusiasm for her art, for her subjects and for life.
