Describe your approach to teaching
I believe anyone can be taught to draw. I really enjoy sharing my ideas and know that to be a good teacher you have to keep learning new things yourself.

What inspires your own work?
I love making things and adapting my skills to new media. I started working on my journaling and sketchbook skills during lockdown and now enjoy using watercolour most of all.
