Welding and Jewelry Instructor
I have been an artist, first as a jeweler, then as a ceramicist and welder for over 30 years.
As an artist, I try to bring to Stonybrook Fine Arts a range of knowledge to guide students in using their own abilities to create objects to enhance their lives. I believe the creative process brings a sense of self, and that creativity, once practiced, will always be available for working with whatever issues present themselves in art and life. It is the making of objects using hands, minds, and heart that excites me. It is the teaching of this process as a guide that lets me give something back to the community.
At Stonybrook Fine Arts we have the facilities to create dimensional objects in a range of media and functionality. The tools have been assembled keeping in mind that we all have goals for our own expression, whether they are to make a piece of sculpture, furniture, or an electric motorcycle. We value diversity of thought and are enriched by what our students bring to Stonybrook Fine Arts.
