Describe your approach to teaching.
I encourage each student to find their own personal language in their own work. Material exploration and the excitement of experimenting is an important element of my teaching.
What inspires your own work?
The properties of materials, museum artifacts, folklore, archaeological finds, flora and fauna, fossils, folk art, old textiles and costumes, female pioneers and trailblazers. I am also inspired by non visual sources such as stories & music.
