Describe your approach to teaching.
I aim to support everyone whatever their level of experience or confidence. I encourage experimentation as well as offering basic skills, practical demonstrations and advice.

What inspires your own work?
Waste plastic is a hugely diverse and interesting material resource for making by hand. I’m inspired by natural forms and the marks created by wind, tide and water on plastic.
