“Traditionally, folk art was created by people who did not even have a word for art in their culture. Art was simply what people did. It was a part of being human. My classes foster this philosophy in a contemporary setting. Folk art often has a practical purpose or meets a specific need. Many of my classes utilize found objects and recycling, reflecting our society’s need to conserve and repurpose”
