Grace Hampton

Senior Faculty Mentor and Professor of Art, Art Education, and Integrative Arts

Key event in career

There was no single event that changed or triggered my professional trajectory. I believe that the trajectory was set into motion during my very early childhood experiences in the arts, followed by my training and study in the visual arts. My career as a teacher, professor and administrator grew out of natural talents as an artist.

How she expanded her sphere of influence

I have shared my personal experiences with others, helped others to understand that challenges can be of overcome, and used the influence I have as a leader to promote others when and whenever possible.
