"I look at teaching as one of the ultimate creative acts. You are given willing young artists' minds and are asked to mold and shape them. Like a photograph or a painting, each person is different, brings a different story to the table and requires a unique response in turn to help guide them toward being successful artists. It never gets dull. Their energy and enthusiasm for their craft is invigorating and infectious."
