As a writer, curator, historian and professor, I am a guide. Every artist, every painting, every sculpture, every exhibit, every class has a story to tell. My extensive experience in every vein of the visual arts has enabled me to become the eternal Virgil.
Whatever your project may be, I pledge to shepherd you along a unique journey toward a destination tailored specifically for your story."

I would like to acknowledge and thank Tracey Hawkins for the incredible work that she has done for me. She is kind, intelligent, and incredibly insightful...Tracey is an amazingly bright light in everything she is involved with.
Prof. Tracey Hawkins is one of the most effective instructors I have ever had...She is universally loved and highly respected by students and faculty, alike.
Tracey has a presence and work ethic that are unmatched. Her love of art and writing are as true to the heart as she is. I can't wait to work on more video and photography projects with her!
