Arts Education master's student in the Faculty of Education

I am a multi-disciplinary educator with a focus on accessibility. Having had experiences working with children (3+), adults, and seniors, I enjoy adjusting my teaching style to suit my students and address the barriers to education. I am dedicated to encouraging creative growth and confidence. As an artist and in my teaching, I explore everything from the very flat 2d style of vector graphics to the literally sculptural qualities of clay. I eagerly engage with heavy topics and humour and absurdity. I find cuteness, humour, pop-culture, and aesthetics to be great tools for exploring complex topics in a more accessible way.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

When I studied my bachelor’s at Emily Carr University, I focused on visual arts and critical theory. Through my workplace training and hands on experience as an art teacher, I was able to hone my skills as an educator. The knowledge I gained was exciting, but I found myself greedy for more. SFU’s art education program bridged the theoretical and interdisciplinary gaps I found myself wanting to leap across.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

In my program, we learn how to become better art teachers :)

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

It’s incredibly rewarding to be around other educators, all with very different teaching experiences, who get equally fired up about art education.
