Exploding Pomegranate

I am so glad to be teaching Visual Arts at Washburn High School.  Prior to joining Minneapolis Public Schools in 2011 I taught Studio Art, Drawing and Painting and AP Art for eight years at a Public Magnet School in Chicago.

I graduated from Yale with a BA in Sociology with extensive coursework in Studio Art and I completed my Masters in Art Education degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  I am licensed to teach Visual Arts (K-12) in Minnesota.

In Fall 2016, I am teaching Studio Art 1st and 2nd periods in rooms 209 and 211. In Spring 2017, I'll be teaching Drawing 1 during the same class periods. The best way to contact me is using my MPS e-mail:

My own artwork is usually drawing and painting. Currently my artistic subject matter is often informed by a quirky sense of humor, my social values, and occasionally just what or who is sitting around the house.

“The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is -

it’s to imagine what is possible.” - bell hooks
