Describe your approach to teaching
Over the course of the class, I aim to learn about each student’s ability, creative influences and taste, and tailor my critiques to their individual needs.

What inspires your own work?
Visual storytelling is what motivates me to paint. Whether I have a concept for a large multi-figure composition or a simple still life, the story suggested by the picture is of the utmost importance.
