"The two main strands of my teaching are - firstly, developing the individual students' creativity and secondly, putting practical art practice in a contemporary and historical context."
"I feel the ideal studio is like a laboratory, an experimental place where ideas can be explored and observations made and always with the possibility of an extraordinary discovery."
