Describe your approach to teaching
My approach to teaching is open and adapted to anyone’s level. The result is not what matters, it is the learning journey. I am always there to answer any questions.

What inspires your own work?
My primary inspiration is nature. I like to work with natural materials. I use defects on the veneer or other materials as assets to create realistic renders.
