• Advice for my students:

    *Keep an open mind; don't jump to conclusions. Don't compare yourself to others. Create for yourself. There is no contest.
    *Never say I can't or it is too hard. Say something is time consuming. Given enough time you can do almost anything!
    *Be your own toughest critic but also your own best supporter. Work hard and self reflect, but be kind to yourself.
    *Work in your process journal a little everyday. Not because you have to, but because ccretivity is addicting, feels good, and is rewarding!
    *Think outside the box - it is very liberating!
    *All doors open to a hard enough push!
    *Be humble - learn from everyone and everything.
    *There is no such thing as a mistake there is only a change of direction.
    *Excellence is in the details. Take pride in all you do and others will notice. 
    *Ask questions. Be hungry to learn.
    *Don't worry about grades. They are just markers and guides. Just be enthusiastic and you will excel!
    *Have a sense of humor about yourself and about life.



    To educate literally means "to draw out" not "to stuff in."
