What is your approach to teaching?
Teaching is a chance to share my enthusiasm for looking, experimenting, discovering. Drawing and painting is a process to be explored. Be curious, and find your own way of seeing.
What inspires your work?
I am fascinated by interior spaces: my own home and studio, other people's homes. Starting with observation of space, light, line and colour, I am drawn into memory, stories and personal experience.
