After 13 years of living and working in Atlanta, an amazing opportunity to teach at Memphis College of Art (MCA) will relocate me to Tennessee for the next academic year.
Leaving Atlanta is not easy. Over the years, I have crossed paths with so many wonderful people that have all inspired and influenced who I am today. I graduated undergrad from GT, worked at the marketing agency Trend Influence, pursued consulting and freelance gigs, taught undergraduate courses, showed work around town both in galleries and within the urban environment, wrote a thesis paper, graduated from GSU with my M.F.A… It’s been amazing!
I’ve been so lucky to experience these adventures and still, I can’t wait to join the faculty in Memphis and start meeting the community there.
A little about MCA (quoted from their website), “Founded in 1936, Memphis College of Art is a professional center of art and design education, dedicated to preparing individuals for lives of creating, problem solving and critical thinking. Small by choice and purpose, MCA is a cultural wellspring of creating, nurturing and educating artists of all levels. Located within 342-acre Overton Park, MCA offers state of the art facilities, excellent faculty, interdisciplinary programs and cutting edge exhibitions to the public and those pursuing BFA, MFA, MAT and MAArtEd degrees. It is one of only four independent, regionally and nationally accredited art colleges in the south and is the only one to offer graduate degrees.”
I will be teaching three courses this fall including drawing I, Design of Advertising, and Design Systems. As always, I will create blogs where folks can follow our daily musings and activities online.
See you in August!
