Teaching at K.P.H.S has been a privilege and a joy for over 25 years (as I say, “the students get older, I don't").
I am a graduate of UMD with a BS and a MFA degree. I am currently working on a degree from RISD in Natural Science Illustration.
The Fine and Performing Arts Department motto is Arts for All and Expect Excellence.
My personal teaching philosophy is one that starts with respect and understanding and ends with creating art is a learned skill. It is my job to teach those skills in a way that encourages, nurtures and develops students to be independent learners.
We in this department develop artists that will grow in their technical skills, develop in their artistic vocabulary and will be prepared for a lifetime of creativity whether majoring in college in the fine and performing arts or not.
‘Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.’
