First year at SCAD:

"Artists are, by nature, creative and sensitive. Fine artists must be skilled, independent thinkers and confident in their work. Creative, sensitive art students come to us at diverse levels of skill, conceptual ability, cultural orientation and personal history. Engaging students at their present level and leading them forward in their evolution presents a personal and professional challenge that I embrace with enthusiasm."
