Describe your approach to teaching:

My approach to teaching is relaxed and friendly but focused. Students will get as much out of me and the course as they put in.

What inspires your own work?

I am inspired by unusual patterns and textures that I can capture a good photograph of and that I know will translate well onto fabric.
