Describe your approach to teaching

Practical instruction, followed by group discussions, and one-to-one guidance. Students are given plenty of opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas with myself and each other.

What inspires your own work?

I enjoy opportunities to see the world anew, hence my love of close-up photography and abstract interpretations of the natural landscape.
