“I am grateful for my AC education and all the ways it has contributed to my career as an Artist. Almost every semester I was on campus I took an art class, Craig Hall was my refuge. I loved the time I spent in there working. Long hours in the photo lab and Abell Library helped me develop a sense of work ethic, and working on Environmental Studies projects and Art projects (especially those with a show deadline) allowed me to develop a sense of curiosity and problem solving. My work ethic and ability to ask, ‘Is there another way I could do this?’ have been foundations to every part of my life.”
