"I am very fortunate that I have been able to teach at Benedictine University for over two decades. Teaching is an intense and all-consuming experience. My life has benefited from teaching in two primary ways: Accepting the responsibility of teaching has served to ground me spiritually. Teaching is a deeply moral act; it has given me much satisfaction to see that I can make a significant difference in the lives of my students. The other aspect of teaching that I have benefited from is its power to influence my own art making. What I lecture on in the classroom will often end up in my pictures. This is especially true for the foundation courses where the fundamentals of representation continue to instruct me as to what the great masters of the traditional and contemporary periods deemed worthy to be in a picture."
