Meet Matthew

I worked on staff for the Claraty Arts Project in Santa Cruz, CA. My work there involved giving critical feed back to artists as well as supporting them in their skills and concept building. The focus there is on composing pictures that communicate identity and by doing this everyone gets to know each other and themselves very well. The artists were adults living with developmental disabilities and the studios purpose was to challenge the stereotypes that are obstacles to them in their lives.
My work in Care giving was with Imagine Supported Living Services and Caring Friends.
I was lucky at the time to work with one of two clients I had become friends with at Claraty Arts. My experience working in this field has opened interesting doors by getting to know new people. This job I believe is always about supporting clients to live their lives to the fullest.

Matt has been a wonderful mentor for our son with a disability and a passion for creating art. With Matt's background and experience in both art and art instruction for people with special needs, he came with just what our son wanted. They have spent quiet hours together with my son taking instruction from Matt. Matt is patient, non-judgmental, supportive, kind and punctual and reliable. He is a wonderful person and his presence has truly been a gift.
