As an art educator, I have extensive experience designing and implementing art curriculums using a wide spectrum of art materials, along with a vast array of different experiential exercises and projects, all of which are designed to develop a sense of competency and accomplishment for students across all levels of ability and aptitude.
Informed by my own practice as a visual artist, my approach to teaching art is to give mechanical instruction, to guide students to explore multiple perspectives and simultaneously learn to observe holistically.
I practice “slow looking” to bring the view into my field of vision. I have been taught that all art embraces drawing. To see from both macro and micro perspectives gives the practice of drawing variety within an overarching theme of nature.
I consider my job as an artist to be to conduct experiments using art materials as a manipulation of phenomena, like a child at play.
My most recent work explores mosaic as a metaphor for putting together the pieces of a fractured life. As a picture emerges so does a story.
I grew up around art and creative people; hold advanced degrees in fine art and art education; and have a lifelong practice of integrating artistic expression, attention to detail, and problem-solving into all aspects of my professional and personal life.
