My “process over product” philosophy prioritizes the growth of each individual, the building of TEAM and the encouragement of everyone's creativity. When you give a young person the gift of theater you give them a place to grow and build confidence and self-esteem. You encourage them to listen and compromise. They learn about teamwork AND hard work. In the end, they become dedicated and determined. They experience the pride of seeing something through. The good actor that might develop is a by-product of the great person that has emerged.
I love to tell stories. Musical theater was my passion as a young artist. Now, I'm as excited to sing songs that speak to my heart with only a piano and any size audience. I sing regularly with Singing for Seniors, which is very rewarding and great fun. My work as a teacher/ coach makes acting in plays during the school year difficult. But I keep my skills sharp by doing improvisations in medical schools, law firms, and counseling centers. I'm also a tour guide at Lincoln Center and am earning hours by training in Drama Therapy techniques.
Theater and music arts are so collaborative. I started shooting and writing as a way to exercise my creativity on my own. Over the last year or two, I realized I love sharing what I've created too! My photography company is called TLC Arts, and I don't just shoot. I create little works of art to Touch hearts, Lift spirits, and Celebrate life. I sell handmade cards and things at craft fairs and will eventually have an online store. For now you can shop for prints or download free inspiration with the photographer link above!
