Describe your approach to teaching

Open minded and encouraging I aim to both support and challenge students on an individualised basis to pursue and develop personalised research to underpin their own creative enquiries.

What inspires your work

I am interested in re contextualising history over parallel time frames. Influences of late are male visionaries, hypnosis, mirrors, fakery, science and personal belief systems from a female perspective.
