It is my belief that my job as an artist is to express myself, my innermost thoughts and feelings, and creativity by conceptualizing and creating art. My job as an educator is to share with my students the techniques and processes that will enable them to express themselves, their innermost thoughts and feelings, and creativity while encouraging them to conceptualize and enjoy the process of making art.
