Favorite KCAD fact
The comb-over quotient of this institution is surprisingly low.
Who do you think every KCAD student should meet?
Professor Deborah Rockman. I came to study with her specifically and strongly believe she is the best studio instructor I have ever met.
Best kept secret about Grand Rapids
Fulton Street Farmers Market.
Favorite medium and why
I prefer drawing because of the immediacy of pulling a line.
Which art book would you recommend to students?
â??Walking on Water,â?� by Madeline Lâ??Engle.
What is the one thing you do not feel should be represented in a portfolio review?
I think I am immediately put off by an attitude of entitlement or Manga.
