Library & School Visits

I am very happy to do library and school visits!

My presentation can be tailored to all age levels, from pre-schoolers and kindergarteners to college students and professionals. Please contact me to discuss your needs. You can also check out a blog post from a workshop I did over at Arsenal Center for the Arts.

For Kids

Library and school visits include a presentation where I talk about my early years, what and who inspired me then and  now and my path to becoming a professional artist and illustrator (it wasn’t a straight path…). I also discuss my process of creating a collage and answer questions from the audience. Time permitting, I can do a collage workshop where everyone creates their very own collage from recycled magazines and junk mail!

For Adults

I’m also more than happy to present to adults. My presentation revolves around the concept of “artist as entrepreneur”. I describe the details of setting up your business, working as a freelancer, marketing methods (I worked in marketing for many, many years before becoming a full time artist & illustrator) and potential revenue streams for artists and illustrators.
