I grew up in California attending public schools. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from San Jose State. I then moved to New York City and attended Hunter College where I received a Master of Fine Arts Degree.
I enjoy being an art teacher. Each class is an adventure. I believe education can be most effective with simplicity—I strive for a clear exchange of ideas.
My vision for the art department is one of creativity, community and commitment. I believe in the profession of art for those who feel a real pull and also the easy going quality of art for everyone. I think that art should be an ever present subject in school because it is a way for all people to educate themselves of the profound experience of life. Exploring, experimenting, and pursuing ideas is the center of what art is.
