Describe your approach to teaching
My teaching is motivated and inspired by ways Old Masters and Contemporary artists work.  Building, encouraging and empowering artists to be the best, most effective and skilled they can be.

What inspires your own work?
I’m inspired by everyday life; By galleries, by the habits, ideas and examples of great successful artists, by practical hands-on creative intellectual strategies together with critical emotional thinking and by sketchbooks.
