Describe your approach to teaching:
I teach traditional couture millinery techniques that can be then used to create really experimental and beautiful work. I encourage students to design through making and be led by the materials.
What inspires your own work?
I find inspiration in many things. I love organic natural forms and textures, particularly trees and plants, but also enjoy using unusual or vintage materials.
