DESCRIBE YOUR APPROACH TO TEACHING:
I have a hands on approach to teaching and I do not see limitations, only possibilities. I encourage students to test their ideas with confidence and develop to a higher standard.

WHAT INSPIRES YOUR OWN WORK ?
I am inspired by the structure and play of light on form; I can create ideas from Architecture, the composed landscape of Japanese Gardens or even a painting by Kandinsky.
