In recent years I’ve been spending more and more of my time as a teaching artist. Working with kids, teens and adults on different ways to tap into their creativity, expand their skill set and tell their own stories. My classes range from comic book illustration, figure drawing, screen printing, mini zines making, murals painting and more. I am passionate about visual language as an empowering means of self expression and am excited to share my experience with students of all ages and backgrounds.
