What is your approach to teaching?

As a self -developed artist, I encourage my students to work to their own design brief. Not only do we all learn from the other students, it is so much more satisfying.

What inspires your own work?

I am lucky to live next to a forest, and this cannot help but inspire my work. So a familiar weed, turns into an unusual art object.
