Describe your approach to teaching:
Being creative is a real joy and I feel that learning a new skill should be too. So I like to teach by encouraging, demonstrating and hopefully, inspiring.
What inspires your own work?
A lot of my work is inspired by nature. I also take delight in words, lovely phrases and children's purity of thought and the joy they find in the mundane.
