Artist Statement

When making my art, I take careful notice of all the materials and techniques I use. I then take these skills back to my classroom and use them as tools to ignite creativity in my students. By exposing myself to a wide variety of mediums I am in turn exposing my students though my experiences. My main focus is to create art that will grab the attention of my students and pull them in. By exploring the many hands on elements of my art, I hope that my will also learn more about the elements of art and how they can be used. Along with this my goal is to infuse art with many other subjects to enhance the importance of art and the different ways it can be used in and out of the classroom.
