“ The smallness of [Siena Heights University’s] size allows… a mentoring process. I have found, however, by visiting smaller Universities and Colleges around the country, that’s not always the case; so I think that Siena’s special in the way that their faculty, staff and students interact with each other. ”

"My teaching philosophy is experientially based. Art is a process of discovery and my role in this journey is multifold. I provide students with the fundamentals, the rules of art making. I offer guidance along the way, giving the student permission to take risks, break rules, fail and succeed. I encourage them to look at, write and talk about art. I hope they will always be investigators, continually rediscovering their own answers along the way."
