Describe your approach to teaching
I encourage students to see and experience things differently, pushing the boundaries with materials and taking risks to create new and exciting work.

What inspires your own work?
My sanctuary is in nature; a place to breathe, reflect and enjoy.  I see the natural world as a catalyst for my work; these elements continue to energise and inspire me.
