What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to meet with them first and talk about what their goals and expectations are. I also like to see any prior work they have so I can know how best to further their artistic journey.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold a BFA and MFA in sculpture. I also hold a Post Bacc. in art education.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been creating art since I could hold a pencil. I started teaching while in college as a TA and have never stopped. I love working with people to create an artistic vision, I see mentoring and teaching as doing exactly that.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My youngest student was 3 and my oldest was a 103. I teach all mediums, sculpture, painting, drawings, claymation, video/film, multimedia and more.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Lately I am working on a series called wood people. I create the people that already exist in the patterns on the wood. Example - the knot of the wood is an eye and so forth. I completed 4 in about a week.
