About Me

(placeholder)

To teach students that the arts are more thatn a collection of images, designs, or artifacts, but are a practical means to better inform ourselves and discover things we intrinsically know but have forgotten; to bring to conciousness what people alreay know. To heighten students' awareness and perception of life by making them vicariously live it. That the arts are one of the chief means by which we grapple with and interpret reality.

My goal is to create and foster a collaborative learning experience brining together creative practives, problem-solving across disciplines, community-engaged scholarship, and real-world inquiry models.

I am an artist and art teacher skilled in numerous media, includeing ceramics, drawing, oils, acrylics, and photography. I successfully create all forms of pottery and sculpture, manifesting a two dimensional/ photographic design into and onto clay.
