Tell us about your artistic practice and how working with children inspires you.

I find my personal practice (drawing and sewing) to be pretty solitary. Working with kids allows me to share knowledge about art-making, and have confidence in what you make, while also being inspired by others.

Do you have a favorite memory of making art as a child?

I used to enjoy collaboratively inventing and designing superheroes with my mom.

What do you enjoy most about working at CMA?

CMA is a very welcoming and fun workplace and I am very glad to be a part of it!
