About Teaching: “It is my goal, as an instructor, to establish an engaging creative environment where students have the freedom to explore new techniques, examine theoretical and philosophical ideas, strive to do more, make mistakes, and, ultimately, become better artists.”

Education: BFA, Auburn University; MFA, Louisiana State University
About Teaching: "My teaching philosophy is strongly connected to my artistic philosophy and experience. Making artwork is an extension of experiences through life. As an art teacher I enjoy working with my students as they progress in creating their own distinctive works of art."
