Describe your approach to teaching.

I have a very relaxed approach to teaching. I believe that every student should try to develop their own designs, however inexperienced they are. I am simply there to guide them and solve their problems.

What inspires you own work?

My work is inspired by London where I live, although there is a deep connection with Greece where I was born . The unique quality of the light and colours of summer often seem to emerge in my work.
