Courses  Art + Design History I: Ancient-18th Century | Art + Design History II: 18th Century-1945

My undergraduate degree at Miami University of Oxford comprised a studio painting and drawing focus, with emphasis upon children's book illustration and socio-cultural studies of childhood, with minors in English and Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude and attended Case Western Reserve University for both my Master's Degree and PhD, where my interest in art therapy turned into an interest in the social and pedagogical history of children's rights, and the sociological perception of childhood as a construct, in American art. After graduate school, I explored an internship in the Distance Learning Department of the Cleveland Museum of Art's Education Program, and authored many DL lectures currently offered in the department, including lectures on the CMA's collection of Old and New Testament subject matter, an exploration of francophone African art, a tribute to the Monuments Men, and famous images of canine companions.

My undergraduate degree at Miami University of Oxford comprised a studio painting and drawing focus, with emphasis upon children's book illustration and socio-cultural studies of childhood, with minors in English and Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude and attended Case Western Reserve University for both my Master's Degree and PhD, where my interest in art therapy turned into an interest in the social and pedagogical history of children's rights, and the sociological perception of childhood as a construct, in American art. After graduate school, I explored an internship in the Distance Learning Department of the Cleveland Museum of Art's Education Program, and authored many DL lectures currently offered in the department, including lectures on the CMA's collection of Old and New Testament subject matter, an exploration of francophone African art, a tribute to the Monuments Men, and famous images of canine companions. My career in higher education, which is probably my biggest passion, began at the Cleveland Institute of Art, where I've taught foundation and Modern art history courses to both native and multilingual students. My goal is to obtain full time employment at an art school or university art history department focusing on American art of the 19th and 20th centuries, and women's and child studies. My current publishing project is the 630-page manuscript of my dissertation, an essay on Robert Henri's Portrait of Willie Gee and American race relations at the turn of the twentieth century, and a focused look at pedagogical reform in postbellum American paintings. At the Cleveland Institute of Art, I have taught foundation surveys and modern art, as well as served as liaison between the Art History Department and ESL Department.
