I love art and the teaching of it. I've been a professional artist for more than thirty years and an educator for the past six.
I treat my students as contemporaries rather than students. I just know a little bit more than they do.
We reduce complexity to simple essential steps. That is the magic "how to think creatively and professionally".
It is my job to provide a safe space where they can be free to not only learn how to paint, use Photoshop or Illustrator but, how to express oneself as a creative person. To be the best you can can be and have fun at the same time.
If I can excite a mind and stir that person's abilities so they can progress...I'm doing great.
If I can stir their passion for art/design, their joy, well...than I have really done my job.
