Artist With an Educational Mission

Education provides young people with a sense of agency and purpose; it can foster the skill sets to overcome adversity and adapt from the education system to the professional and independent world. 

My artistic development over the past twelve years has founded a deep seated belief that incorporating the arts into our understanding of education in terms of how we experience, perceive, live, learn, and connect plays a vital role in creating such environments and achieving such outcomes. 

I am on a mission to expand Fresca Bella Studios into an educational residency and campus. The next few years will be simultaneously committed to my studio practice, educational field work, and graduate studies, granting me the knowledge, skills, and experience to enact and scale my residency.
