Describe your approach to teaching:

My approach to teaching. I aim to inspire: everyone has the potential to be creative, it's just a matter of unlocking it or removing the barriers that prevent it. Then it takes time to 'find your voice' and develop and hone your own unique style.

What inspires my work?
Great texts and epic poems from a variety of cultures and sources. Words can unlock creative potential and take you to the source, creating a space for you to create. Visually, I love the look of handwriting and handwritten documents. I want to know the story behind the mark. For me, handwriting is like the 'voice' after the person has gone.
