Q: How do you respond to challenging moments as an artist?
♦️
A: As an artist, I respond to challenging moments by breaking down the problem, possible solutions, and the most logical and sensible solution. There are a lot of different ways you can approach a challenging situation. There’s not really a right or wrong way to solve it, but as an artist, I’m so used to exploring multiple avenues to get an end goal. There’s no one way to approach a classroom behavior problem or a financial situation. There are multiple ways to get yourself to better ground.

Q: Tell us about your artistic practice and how working with children inspires you.
🦋
A: I am a figurative oil painter whose work leans toward magical realism. Teaching children helps me remember and celebrate my own inner child. They help me see the world fresh and remember the excitement of everyday moments!
