Describe your approach to teaching:
I teach by showing examples of what I am teaching, demonstration, verbal description and by supporting personal practice. I encourage questions and to assist remembering I supply course notes.

My work is mainly practical such as salad bowls and platters and I aspire to make them aesthetically pleasing but simple in design. I aim for continuity of design.
