Teacher Bio

Creating art is a reflection of ones personal experience, culture and vision. Artistic expression is a direct reflection of person’s values, identity, experiences and aesthetics- it’s personal. My work tells stories of personal inspiration and exploration through the use of silver, metal, glass, resin, clay, wood and other mixed-media materials. It can reflect both historical and contemporary context through research and experimentation. Process and research is my main muse in creating work.  I find inspiration: reflect, research and create an idea, then explore the possibilities of how to create it.  Moving backwards in my process I work through my idea in a series- exploring the many paths that may occur.

Creating value of ones vision, message and expression is the basis of teaching. In a collaborative environment, students can learn from themselves, from others and with guidance, discover their identity and gain motivation, becoming lifelong learners. I teach with a passion of sharing knowledge, experience, techniques and enthusiasm.

You can find my work locally at Willow Artesian Market, Caboodle Gifts and Lowbrow and online at Kuhnearts.com

 

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
