I never thought that I would be a teacher. And once I started teaching in my painting workshops in 2006, I never thought I would become a student as a result of it. The fact is, my workshops have provided as much growth and learning for me, as it has for my students. Every demo I do, (especially while struggling with a painting in front of a class of 16!), I learn humility. Every piece of advice I offer, that advice always applies to me. Every success, every failure, every bit of new information that I come across in teaching, is what I still need to learn…as a student, and as a teacher.
