I wrote message below, and I am curious if it sounds out of line.

Firstly, don’t send a message.

Messages/Emails can’t convey your message properly. I saw an article somewhere a while ago that the majority of person to person communication is non-verbal.

Body language and facial expression conveys so much more that what you are actually verbalising.

You need to say this face to face. Ask for a private meeting and make your point clearly and calmly. A good point to make is that s/he’s not getting your best work by micro-managing you.

Telling someone that they don’t understand what it is you are doing (your process) is NOT (IMO) a good way to start.

Perhaps you and this person need to get together and really clarify what it is s/he wants from the design and come up with mutually agreed design process with staged review points.
