I love to teach! Nothing makes me happier than to see a student make that connection, when something finally makes sense. As I get to know students and what it is they are interested in, I use their experience to create the mental imagery that will help them achieve understanding. Common ground is often times the best way to relate a concept to students. I can couch the knowledge I have in language
and imagery a student understands. I have developed my teaching style by tutoring fellow students throughout my undergraduate studies, and by teaching foundation level art
classes at UMass Dartmouth as a graduate student. I now have my MFA in sculpture.
I've been a photographer for about fifteen years, and I've been making sculpture for about eight. I started shooting in Los Angeles when a friend of mine loaned me her 35mm camera. I took it out for a day and I was hooked! I started carrying my camera around all the time, buying lenses and film
(back in the day of film), and taking classes at Los Angeles City College, where I learned to develop black & white film and prints. I documented the Los Angeles poetry scene, shot stills for an MTV special, and the cover photo and interior photos for a book of poetry. I set up a darkroom in my apartment, where I shot portraits and developed prints. Then I decided to finish my education. At University of Arkansas at Little Rock, I received my B.A. in Studio Art with emphasis in photography
and sculpture. I worked for a portrait studio, where I was shooting digitally using a Nikon D60 and editing
. Using Alien Bees for studio lights, I improved my studio lighting skills. I traveled with world renowned architectural photographer Tim Hursley for a year, before deciding to pursue my master's degree. I would love to share my knowledge of photography with you and help you refine your skills.

making marks. It doesn't matter what they look like or if they look like anything, just start scribbling. You've gotta get your hands moving...
