Describe your approach to teaching
I take a person-centred approach to my teaching, spending time with each individual, and believing that each person brings something truly valuable and exciting to their art. Listening and responding to what’s said, and left unsaid, forms the starting point from which creativity evolves. My focus is to build confidence and inspire others to carry on creating beyond the workshop itself. 

What inspires your own work? 
My work’s a tangible expression of things I see, feel and experience.
The landscape provides a constant and enduring inspiration to which I return time and again. I have travelled extensively over the years and enjoy drawing on the cultures, patterns, textures and colours of these remarkable places. Joy and inspiration can also be found in old objects and the concept of the traces that remain from previous and continuous use.
