Your approach to teaching
I have a relaxed approach to teaching and try to have a hands-off approach demonstrating on separate pieces, allowing students to hone their particular skills and interests.

What inspires your work?
My work is inspired by the silversmiths George Jenson, Ian Calvert and Norman Bassant, particularly for their hand-raising skills. I'm also inspired by the arts and crafts and art deco movements.
