Art Teacher (Fine and Applied)
I’m a story artist and animator, currently living in the Chicago area, with a passion for storytelling, collaborative work and all things 3D. After teaching art in Hawaiian public schools for nearly a decade, I’ve decided to continue creating stories through art and animation with any time I have here in Oak Park while teaching our youth.
