Artist Statement

In the summer of 2019, I was a Fulbright Specialist conducting ‘Teaching and Learning Workshops’ at Nagenda International Academy of Art and Design (NIAAD) near Entebbe, Uganda. The faculty of NIAAD and I investigated the theoretical foundations of pedagogy which promote critical thinking and skill building in a learner based tertiary art curriculum. As mentor and mentees, we learned so much from each other regarding creative collaboration, perseverance and the benefit of humor in understanding one another. Reaching beyond the boundaries of age, race, nationality, culture, language and customs, we found commonality during rigorous work, meaningful conversation and adventurous outings.
