Meet Tom Maxfield, our Resident Artist! Every week we will introduce one of the “Faces of NNC” to highlight all of the people whose hard work makes NNC the active and exciting place it is. See below for Tom’s responses to a few questions about himself and his work here:

What do you do at NNC?
As Resident Artist at Nurture Nature Center I pitch in wherever there's work to do that's related to the Arts. So helping to set up exhibits, producing ads and brochures, designing specialty items like posters and displays, and giving teaching tours about NNC's art works fall under my duties. A personal benefit of my position at NNC is getting to promote and learn about information dealing with my favorite focus - the environment.

What led you to your position at NNC?
I was an Art teacher for 28 years, so, initially, I put in evening and weekend hours at the Center. I started by volunteering to help to set up the displays that would adorn the walls of NNC. As I put in more time there, I was increasingly drawn by the same energy, intelligence, and enthusiasm that has attracted many to NNC, so after a couple of years I received my official title. My co-workers are fantastic; their focus, their commitment, and their creative intelligence are inspiring.

I love working at NNC because it feels very good to be contributing to something so important to the lives of so many.

Favorite treat?
Double-thick, coffee malt milkshake. Heaven in liquid form!!

Favorite dinosaur?
Parasaurolophus.
