student collaborations

i believe that education is the greatest form of access. service-learning and community partnerships drive
my pedagogy as a progressive educator. co-creating inquiry-driven projects are the cornerstone of truly student-led education.

DESIGN is a telescoping ladder that I keep in my apron.

My passion for visual language is the action which creates representation through multiple means. Not a discipline, but a dialogic practice, design speaks between the lines to connect meaning, message, and medium. I teach practice as a skill, engaging lived experience, research, and early sampling. I encourage process as a powerful and motivating factor in the development of influential concepts. Within this constellation, the principles of design, elements of art, and aspects of society coexist. At any given moment, during a conversation, interaction, critique, or rebuttal, I retrieve this ladder, connecting 2D, 3D, or 4D thinking.

 

Although proficient in contemporary media and technology, I rely on analog processes, heritage techniques, t-square, and tracing paper.  I use the language to construct, deconstruct, distribute, or link concepts, images, text,  or meaning. Design by its nature is interdisciplinary. It invites a viewer, stirs the mind, forces the conversation, and soothes my soul. My pedagogical stance is wider and deeper in breadth but maintains praxis as a central, unifying aspect.
