"Over the years there have been many inspirations for teaching…from the kind elementary school art teacher who encouraged an incredibly shy child to acknowledge artistic abilities…to the humility, grace and benevolence of three extraordinary graduate school mentors whose patience and insight illuminated the journey ahead…to the remarkably talented SCAD students who have shared an important time in their lives with us before joining the industry ranks. All of these individuals have instilled a renewed awareness in me of the dedication to purpose, devotion, passion and commitment necessary for teaching."
