Describe your approach to teaching:
I am interested in developing people's own design ideas, and like to encourage the exploration of these in a playful, hands-on manner. Learning by doing is the key!
What inspires your own work?
My work is process driven - exploring texture and structure through experimentation, combined with artisan techniques. The Parisian atelier of the Twenties, where playfulness and couture skills meet is my ideal.
