Describe your approach to teaching. 

My approach to teaching is about building confidence through structured workshops which build skills and knowledge. As students develop it is really exciting to support their own creative journey.

What inspires your own work? 

I am inspired by many things, galleries, antique shops and museums, interesting objects such as; Staffordshire flat-backs, early woodcuts, chap books, and a whole host of ephemera and objets d’art!
