My intention as a teaching artist is to enhance my students learning experiences by approaching the art curriculum as visual language subject to their own expression, regardless of experience with art making. To teach visual art is to start a dialogue on a broad range of topics, while introducing a foundation level of artistic skill set and fundamentals. As an art educator I make it my goal to present the visual arts as a learning tool that contributes to the student’s broader cultural understanding and exposing a crossover with current curriculum standards while maintaining the integrity of the creative process. Within my private studio practice I work mainly with sculptural media-- often incorporating ceramic, fibers, metal, found object and collage.
My work is mainly concerned with the encroachment of mankind on the natural environment, celebrating a beauty in devastation. I approach the creative process as an act of mindfulness and societal observation.
