Describe your approach to teaching.

I like to both inspire by showing examples of my own work and research as well as teaching practical techniques to enable students to reach their full potential.

What inspires your own work?

I like to make textile collages, sometimes fabric books and garments, using time worn textiles and hand embroidery that reference folk art and domestic textile traditions.
