Describe your approach to teaching
I like to encourage students to enjoy working in an individual and explorative way, using processes and materials to both challenge and expand their own personal visual language. 

What inspires your own work
I often use imagery of plants alongside mundane domestic materials to create a gentle abstract narrative. The inherent value of materials and the unexpected relationships they have help to tell a tale.
