Thank you, Springer School and Center, for selecting me to be your 2023 artist in residence. “Together We Grow,” is a painting I executed with a core group of 8th grade students who share a unique passion for the arts. The painting pays homage to the curriculum that is set up at the school, which allows each student to develop and learn together at a measured and equal pace. In addition to working with the core group of students, I also conducted art lessons for all the students of the school from grades 1st through 8th based around some of my favorite influences from art history. Thank you to the amazing staff and inspiring students for making me feel so at home.
