I approach teaching as I would my own practice: paying good attention to what is occurring and welcoming the unexpected. I question and inform where necessary and aim always to encourage.

My works explore language, power and situatedness amongst other concerns. They often arrive fully formed in my mind's eye and then it is my job to make them real somehow.
