Describe your approach to teaching.
I really enjoy giving students an understanding to how shoes are made with specialist components and think more about how they are constructed.

What inspires your own work?
I am inspired by architecture and the ability to create something not only wearable but unique, making an environmental statement with the use of reclaimed or antique materials.
