Describe your approach to teaching:
I have a direct and informal approach to teaching. I believe that observation underpins spontaneity; by articulating this I think we discover that we understand far more than we realised!
What inspires your own work?
I am influenced by what I see in the world around me, by all sorts of artists and designers, and by the need to earn a living!
