Teaching is awesome. I enjoy being able to share my love of art. It's rewarding when a student who said they can't create art proudly displays their finished project. My students learn something new, they learn art is interesting, fun and hard work. And it gives them a great sense of accomplishment.

Creativity is about a sense of play and wonder and that forms the basis for critical thinking and problem solving throughout life. I'm happy to be a part of anything that gets the message out there that art is a vital part of our lives. I could go on and on, but instead I'll leave you with your new motto - get out there and CREATE! (Students from my workshops:)
