Describe your approach to teaching?

My approach to teaching is to try and communicate some of excitement and action of working with such expressive materials as clay and slip, to show techniques that I have learned that may help people develop and create their own work

What inspires your own work?

One thing that inspires me is the power and directness of mark making, in paint, clay, pencil, ink or slip.
