Describe your approach to teaching
I have taught extensively over the past 15 years in the UK, China, Italy and USA. I help students gain a good understanding of technique, before fostering a playful curiosity about creativity. 

What inspires your own work?
My work is inspired by daily experiences, absurd situations and comical moments from living in the big city. I love making images with hidden secrets and jokes.
