As a student, my liberal arts education gave me the freedom to explore a wide breadth of subject matter and deepened my understanding of how the artist-citizen participates in the greater social community. As an educator, I channel this philosophy into the studio by encouraging students to explore relationships between the seemingly disparate aspects of their lives and the ways various academic disciplines feed one another.  Teaching  under the umbrella of the liberal arts is a framework for relationships, resiliency and reflection.
