My philosophy is based on diversity: diversity in thought, activity, and approach. Students come from a wide array of lifestyles, educational and artistic backgrounds. It is my job to engage and motivate students in a multitude of creative ways, exposing them to all aspects of art. I strongly believe that students should be introduced to as many processes, theories and techniques as possible. It is through exploration that artist learn the most. A successful studio class enables students to expand their vocabulary in both thought and skill, allowing them to express themselves without limitations.
