First year at SCAD:

"I draw inspiration for teaching from former printmaking and book arts professors of mine, and wish to pass along their knowledge and passion for artmaking. It is my mission to cultivate the awareness and appreciation of artists' books, via the classroom and field trips to collections like the SCAD ACA Library Artists' Book Collection."
