What do you hope your students take away from your class?
I hope that my students learn to keep experimenting with new methods and ideas, to keep challenging themselves so that wherever life takes them, they will persevere!
What is your favorite thing to teach and why?
I love teaching painting and drawing coupled with learning about artists, both old and new because there is an incredible amount of fascinating points of view to learn from.
