Traveling abroad is my favorite way to wake up all of my senses and find adventure, so I’m always looking forward to my next destination.
I try to ensure that my students acquire a mastery of materials and techniques while allowing and encouraging explorations that help each student develop an individual voice in his or her work, whether working from observation or non-representationally. Students are encouraged to be ambitious in both content and form, and to use any given medium to do what it does best in helping them to communicate their ideas through their imagery.
