- About SCAD
"What inspires me as a teacher is the ability to convey to the student the resilient spirit of investigation formed in the traditions of art making and to provide the guidance to commit each student to learning through the exploration and discovery of daily work in the studio. I also strive to make accessible, in clear incremental steps, how to explore and make connections to our common experience."
