My aspiration as a creative educator is to cultivate artistic dispositions to advance creative thinking in ALL my students. I hope to raise the "hierarchical order" of Art, altering the existing stigma of the significance of Art in education, our world and our future.
I use the conceptual lenses and praxis of Art as powerful tools to forge creative thinking and artistic dispositions while nurturing the Infinite Mindset of my students. I will have achieved my aspiration when my students embody their Infinite Mindset; fluently using their creative thinking and artistic dispositions as transferable competencies to better our future.
I am a member of the 5 am club. I start my day with mediation, setting intentions and learning something new. I am incredibly curious and have an insatiable appetite for learning. I dedicate one hour a day to learning which I implement professionally and personally in my life. I find my happy place in the water. I love to Swim, Scuba Dive, Sail, Wake Board and Paddle Board.
If I am not in the water, I find flow in making art. I am a printmaker at heart, but I also love to illustrate using traditional and digital media. My new found passion is to tinker with technology. I geek out with new tech that I incorporate into my praxis.
If I am not in the studio finding my groove, I am flourishing in the kitchen trying new recipes. I strongly believe that food is a performative tool that creates a sense of belonging, as it engages all five senses. I love all things food, and I have a guilty pleasure of buying too many recipe books.
When not behind a mask, I have a smile that can light up a room.
