Meet the Instructors!

She received her BFA in Art Education from the Massachusetts School of Art & Design and continues to work in education, most recently as a Head Teacher at The Children’s Community School. While using ceramics, textiles, painting and more, her passion lies in giving students the basic tools to develop their creativity into something tangible. Her art-making process revolves around collaboration, joy and trusting her intuition, which are principles that integrate seamlessly into her teaching practice.
