Teaching Philosophy

I believe that the student's best route to success in the arts will come through:

Subjecting one's work to the toughest scrutiny, by oneself and by others. Developing steady, consistent work habits.

Creating a studio environment where the highest degree of concentration is possible. Enjoyment of the creative process, with its moments of exhilaration as well as frustration.
