Taylor is a place that is marked by the presence of the Lord. I chose Taylor as a student because of its strong art department and genuine commitment to discipling spiritual growth. Through my four years I grew academically, artistically, and spiritually in ways that I wouldn’t have anticipated. It is a joy to return back to the classroom as a faculty member. Each individual artist has been gifted with a unique hand, and it excites me to be a part of helping foster Taylor students’ exploration, discernment, and development of individual strengths and visions in their creative processes. I love being in a community where we seek to be life-long pursuers of learning, excellence, and discovery in both creative image making and daily life—seeking to discover more of who God is and in turn learning more of who He has created each of us to be.
