My approach to teaching.
I initiate an idea and a technical task and identify individual's strengths. I ask each student if they have a project in mind for their garden and then develop their work towards fulfilling that aim.
What inspires my work?
My own work refers back to traditional techniques and motifs and then loosens up to express the feel of plants and nature.
