I am a lifelong student of design and can think of nothing better than to explore stylization, material combinations and design elements to create work with the aesthetic that I'm reaching for. I am intrigued by mixing media, bringing motion into play and working with materials that don't occur together naturally. The challenge is to combine disparate things and still create a harmony in the design.
I think it's important to mentor others so I teach around the U.S. and for two colleges andan art center in the Seattle area. It is delightful tome to be able to watch a collective body of information that I've presented come together in someone else's head whether it's a new technique, a way of thinking or seeing, or a renewed sense of confidence for someone in their own skills. Seeing those cogs come together for someone is a privilege to witness and enriches my world. I love sharing that feeling of the world expanding from the new awareness and potential that new knowledge gives. I love that.
