“Your teaching skills are stellar and heartfelt.  I feel more connected to my creativity today than ever before.  That's saying a lot as I am an Art Major drop out...because no one ever taught me how to see, how to draw, and (most importantly) that it is fine for me to enjoy my creativity/creations.
You do magic with your students, what you create for us is a ‘big permission’ to value ourselves and honor our uniqueness.”
Victoria Jordan
