Prepped as a working educational lab, The Red Room is unique for many reasons. Most notably, aside from the restaurant opening its doors to the public, The Red Room is serviced by Collin College’s Dining Room Service and A La Carte Cooking classes.
This combination allows Collin College students in the Dining Room Service class to support the front-of-the-house restaurant management experience while the A La Carte Cooking students prepare, cook and expedite food in the back-of-the-house.
Meanwhile, students in both classes learn the importance of communication between the dining room and kitchen and how to market the restaurant and staff while delivering exceptional service.

Artist Statement: The 'Moods of Haybales' series was inspired by my past. I grew up around animals and open spaces and miss seeing the quiet spaces of Nature and the fresh earthy smells just after a rainstorm. I’ve always been drawn to the interesting shapes, shadows and colors of the haybales in the fields and wanted to invoke those feelings of solitude and introspection while exploring the scene.
My work tends to focus on Nature and animals, and with a background in Geoscience, I can’t help but notice environmental issues. Sometimes this will quietly show up in my paintings without being intentional.
I have worked solely with acrylic but plan to branch out into oils soon. As I explore techniques and mediums, I hope the viewer can imagine a sweet breeze across a field of freshly cut hay, or perhaps the touch of a fluffy cat beside them and feel a sense of connection to their personal message from the works.
