I love working with colors and coming up with new and creative ideas.  I enjoy seeing students discover their own talent and abilities.  Giving them permission to explore and take risks in creating art is a high honor.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I talk with the student to find out about their goals and interests.  I then observe their ability level and to see how comfortable they are in creating and using various artistic techniques and strategies.  I then offer a variety of activities using different mediums and materials.  I want to encourage a sense of play and exploration in art.  By providing a safe environment for risk taking the student will be more willing to focus on the art rather than feelings of concern or insecurity.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over 120 college units in education, science, and art.  I have worked in the public schools for over 23 years with excellent evaluations.  I have designed children's programs for zoos, museums, and theme parks.  Along with publishing curriculum I was the founding principal of an art based elementary school.   Currently I am designing and showing my own work in museums and galleries.
