The best part of my job is connecting with students. I work primarily on the SMFA Campus, where prospective art students can visit and share their artwork. We host one-on-one portfolio reviews. For some students, it is their first time talking about their art. It is a special time where you see into someone's personal ideas and what drives their creativity. Everyone's stories are different. I feel these meetings open so many doors and spark a lot of inspiration for future artwork.
