Creative Biography

I believe that it is my life work to share my artistic knowledge and experience with others. Art is powerful in the way that it communicates, creates connections, and asks philosophical questions. If a person is given the talent to be an artist, it is important that they share their ability with others and encourage their students to inspire others. As an art educator, we can inspire, inform, and provide a creative atmosphere for students to develop and appreciate their creative abilities. As an expressive artist, I believe it is important for students to feel comfortable to create freely while educating them to better understand historical contexts and artistic techniques and enduring ideas.
