Describe your approach to teaching
As a qualified teacher with more than 30 years of experience, I aim to establish a productive space in which students can develop their ideas and build their confidence supported by high-quality resources.

What inspires your own work?
In my own practice, I am inspired by the effects of the changing light on the landscape. The translucent qualities of Bojagi (Korean wrapping cloths) seem to be a perfect medium to express these fleeting moments.
