Teaching Philosophy

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."
Georgia O'Keeffe

"Great ideas lurk down dark alleys."
Richard Yohnka

"Painting, to me, is like prayer. There is a deep communication between you and the canvas. When you are painting, it is as if the paints and canvas and you are one.  Your muse inspires, commands, demands, encourages, forgives, and helps you paint your way through the tough spots. If this is passed on to my students, then I am content. "
Jean Janssen
