Describe your approach to teaching:
I encourage students, through observation, inspiration, experimentation and practical exercises to explore on a variety of textile techniques to further enhance their own practice.
What inspires your own work?
My current work is inspired by the textiles, dyeing techniques and culture of Japan and the natural world, particularly lichen.
