Describe your approach to teaching:
When teaching I aim to foster a relaxed environment where students can let their individual creativity flow, whilst discovering and sharing new techniques and possibilities with clay.

What inspred your own work?
My work is guided by a sense of playfulness and narrative; drawing both materials and inspiration from the colours and objects found in the unique landscape of the South Downs.
