Describe your approach to teaching.
I teach skills that build confidence to inspire and stimulate an individual language of drawing. Within a supportive framework the course aims to be encouraging, challenging and crucially, highly rewarding.

What inspires your own work?
Fascinated by decorative motifs and colour and how they map layers of space. Whether it's Henri Matisse or Mona Hatoum I'm interested in artists who explore a 'sense of place'.
