Describe your approach to teaching:
I like to encourage students to experiment with techniques and materials. Making things should, in my opinion, involve a large element of play.
What inspires your own work?
My work is often based on political or social themes, and within that I enjoy playing with a range of contrasting colours, textures, and materials
