As an artist and teacher, I have a passion for working with people and their creative endeavors. Whether this regards food, art, health, or the environment, I bring my experience, creativity, and leadership skills to any task.
I aspire to work with children and communities through teaching and facilitating art and public works. I have experience tutoring as a volunteer as well as teaching art to students from kindergarten to high school. Incorporating inclusive practices into my teaching is crucial, as art is an activity for all students to actively participate in their education and experiences. When it comes to my philosophies as an art teacher, first and foremost is a student centered approach which provides critical stimulation, new sensory experiences, and opportunities to question and discover.
In my personal art practice I explore ideas around feminism, mythology, and ecology. Lately I’ve become more interested with process and playing with expression, resulting in more abstracted forms. I implement these themes and experiments across a myriad of techniques, from ceramics, printmaking, painting, illustration, and fiber.
