From 2016-2017, I was a PrattMWP Artist in Residence & Community Arts Instructor. During my residency, I presented a lecture of current work, taught classes & held an open studio and joint exhibition of new work. For the exhibition, I created a short story on a spa-inspired character I designed named Peaches. Along with the booklet, I made a life-size plaster sculpture figure of Peaches as part of the installation. Through this program, I interacted with the creative community surrounding PrattMWP while developing a self- directed studio practice. This interaction included meetings with PrattMWP undergraduate students and teaching experience within the School of Art’s non-credit program. The classes I instructed included Stop-Motion Animation, Zine Design & an Animated Gif workshop.
