Coleman Foundation Endowed Chair for Entrepreneurship
Coordinator Menards Center for the Study of Institutions and Innovation
I’ve been at Beloit College for over 25 years, and teach courses ranging from traditional art making processes (Introduction and Advanced Painting, Portrait Painting and Intermediate Drawing) to new media (Graphic Design, UX Design and Introduction to New Media).
Throughout all my courses, I infuse and inform the possibilities and opportunities for entrepreneurial endeavors. Specifically, in my Graphic Design and UX Design courses I embed experiential learning experiences, challenging students to simultaneously engage in the creative process, and address the needs of clients from on and off the campus. I have actively collaborated entrepreneurially with colleagues from various disciplines.
My work as an artist challenges and informs the entrepreneurial information I convey to my students. I am deeply committed to imparting to students the importance of acquiring substantive knowledge of the Business of Art. Recently, I was named the Coleman Foundation Endowed Chair for Entrepreneurship, which provides a platform to continue my commitment to entrepreneurship.
