Describe your approach to teaching. 
My approach to teaching embraces exploration and discovery through playful exercises that allow students to find their inner voice and express themselves creatively.

What inspires your own work?
Colour and music both play a significant part in my creative process. It’s the lyrical energy and exuberance of colour that for me correlates with the composition of music and I’m very drawn to the works of colourist Hella Jongerius, artist Mali Morris and painter Albert Irvin.
