Describe your approach to teaching:
As a teacher I hope to help you as a student to develop your personal language and to provide a supportive environment in which you can explore, experiment, discuss, question, discover new things and progress your ideas.

What inspires your own work?
The role played by objects and locations in shaping individual and collective memories and identities inspires my work whilst textiles and their histories, associations, tactility become means, material and reference.
