I am artist and early childhood educator interested in how artistic expression can be used to foster compassionate learning. I taught 3/4s at the Barrow Street Nursery School and am nearing completion of my Master's in Early Childhood Education at Hunter College. My introduction to teaching developed out of my experience as art director of Kingsley Pines Camp (watch a video featuring my words, voiceover, and teaching here) and then as a teaching artist at the Children's Museum of the Arts in NYC.
Drawing and painting defined my time at the College of Wooster where I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art and a minor in English (view my Independent Study here). While at Wooster, I participated in the New York Arts Program as an intern for Bruce Pearson, Nancy Bowen, and Daniel Zeller.
My experience with NYAP, and particularly with my mentor Emilie Clark, taught me how to sustain my art through any transition.
