Describe your approach to teaching
I teach through demonstrations, discussion, visual source material, group exercises and one-to-one feedback. I encourage play and experimentation to give students the confidence to develop their own individual projects.

What inspires your own work?
My biomorphic ceramic sculpture reflects my fascination with the human body and its connection to other natural forms - using form and texture I create an imaginary world of organic objects.
