First and foremost, I am an artist. I create personal and commissioned art-works using multiple mediums. As a teaching artist (HYFA Academy), by working with other artists I am challenged to stay open to new ideas and making art in different ways. And as an advocate for art, I am deeply committed to using my art-work to support not-for-profit initiatives and people-kind (artF.A.C.E.). I recently worked with Clinton City Schools to pilot Color Vision Awareness, a collaborative effort to extend my UF Research (Color, Vision, & Art) into our community.
