As a former public school art teacher and a current art education professor, I believe in engaging students in meaningful, interdisciplinary curricula. This focus
produces individualized creations that holds relevancy to each student. Moving outside ones’ artistic comfort zone
is always acceptable and in fact, encouraged. Many of the images included on this page represent my explorations using new materials and/or techniques. I am primarily interested in process and how my explorations can translate into K-12 curriculum ideas. I consistently take classes and I enjoy being a student.
In my work, I tend to gravitate towards working with clay using hand building techniques, but I enjoy exploring multiple mediums. Being a generalist is what I enjoy most about teaching art. Following this principle, my portfolio also includes dry masonry work, printmaking, drawing
and images of my efforts to recycle discarded furniture.
At my core, I am an educator who happens to love all forms of art.
