Field of study: Curriculum & Instruction BFA from VCU in Crafts 1998 BFA from VCU in Art Education 2005 I have also studied at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn; The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass; Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy; and most recently with David Darts of NYU.
Special interests: Politics, technology, my former students, hacking, open source software, watching C-Span while I’m asleep…this is also a talent.
Talents & Powers: cat handling; working with cold, warm, and hot glass; removing glass splinters from hands; making flying paper mache animals; as well as, paper mache animal repair; impersonating a green dragon flawlessly; stacking up clutter to optically minimize the overall amount; driving from Virginia to Texas with a cat, a dog, and a shortage of sedatives - resting only at rest stops; and finding things on the internet. I think most problems can be solved with either a little innovation, duct tape, zip ties, whiskey and whatever is in my purse. (The whiskey is not usually in my purse.) I also have a special talent for doing my work early and turning it in late.
