Describe your approach to teaching
My approach to teaching is to follow a principle of “did you know?” to ensure that imparted knowledge is as an invitation to learn by enquiry and openness.

What inspires your own work?
My own work is inspired by the ability of natural process to change and heal. I love endeavour and how this expresses itself in the landscape and people.
