I see my role as an assistant Professor being one that assists
students in achieving their artistic goals. My courses are both
personal and collaborative experiences. Students, along
with my help, define their goals and then set about achieving
them. In this sense, the courses are both general and
specific. They are general in that students are not restricted
to any one approach; specific in that they allow the students
to find their own manner of thinking and making.
Students must achieve a familiarity with technique, concept
and history. Technical ability is allied with the conceptual
focus of the student; they work in tandem. As the students
define their own goals, they also define the technical area in
which they work. I also stress the importance of knowing
previous designs and Interior Designers, both from the past
and present, and from local and international. Designing
interiors cannot be made without a historical context, and
this knowledge helps students understand their designs in
relation to others.
I encourage students to follow their own path in their work
and hope to provide an atmosphere where personal
development flourishes. Also, I feel the classroom through
Through my teaching experiences in different cultures and
nations, I have developed a respect for the individual student
and their work. All Design is unique in that it is created by a
specific person. At the same time, I feel that Design is also
universal. In teaching, I balance these two essences and
provide an experience that both nurtures and informs the students.
