I presently hold multiple teaching appointments as well as offer private lessons for all ages, which can be held in-person or via zoom.
To discuss, write me:

In addition to maintaining my studio practice of photography, sculpture, and puppet stop-motion animation, I am an arts educator. I earned my Bachelors in Fine Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art and my Masters Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. In addition to my art practice specialities, I am also experienced in and have led lessons on a wide variety of art making processes ranging from filmmaking, darkroom and digital photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, jewelry, woodwork, clay, and more.  


My teaching philosophy:
My drive as an educator comes from seeing students become the best version of themselves. I foster a learning environment where students are encouraged to take creative risks, embrace growth from mistakes, and learn to trust their own creative instincts. I instill in my students not only technical proficiency but also the creative confidence to articulate their own one-of-a-kind story from within.
