Describe Your approach to Teaching?
I appreciate a very informal and relaxed ambient in my classes, where the students can find their own creativity and design through a series of practical exercises.
What inspires your own work?
I'm mostly inspired by clean lines and symmetrical shapes. A geometric form brings harmony and balance, calm and fluidity to a body.
