Hello, I’m a freelance artist and educator, and an instructor at Academy of Art University. I earned an MAT from The Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My knowledge of K-12 teaching and curriculum design spans six years in online publishing, art and museum education, public and charter schools, library, and community contexts. I use the visual arts as a tool to build empathy, observation, creative problem solving, deep thinking, and creative confidence. Click for LinkedIn profile. Explore the site and make some art!
