About me
I’m a fine art graduate with a BA Hons and HND Graphic and Digital Design. I’ve displayed my artwork in exhibitions such as the Canterbury Art Fair and Parallax Art Fair (in Chelsea and Pall Mall). I’m very passionate about creating designs and can keep to the brand guidelines or create new ones depending on business needs. I have key skills in Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, photography and painting. I have strong compositional skills, typographic knowledge and layout design as shown on my portfolio website. I have included a variety of projects (web banners, flyers, books etc) which demonstrated my understanding of branding including consumer insight (Lush campaign work). I am a confident team player and would love to produce ideas and help to deliver the best results for the company as well the client base.

    any segment magazine issue 01 previewDuring a time where recognition for artists is becoming harder and harder, even when the market is saturated with such talented people, I decided to create a side project in order to give people wider recognition and deserving publicity associated with their fabulous work, a project that included a celebration of the modern art world and all the perceivable delights that come with it. It was also started in support of charity, for those who may be suffering the most at this moment. In the first

    Engage VolunteerHorniman Museum and Gardens
    London, United KingdomInternship
    • I deal with public enquiries about the museum artefacts and activities. • In 2014 I was the project leader of a group who designed a volunteer interpretation guide for the Horniman’s Extremes Exhibition by making sure it contained illustrations of various artefacts, information about the displays and questions to ask the public. I learned how to work to a tight deadline, was able to solve issues (such as lack of work from a team member) to achieve the best results possible. I was then nominated by the Horniman for the London Volunteers in Museums Award in Bringing Innovation ( certificated ) and can now use strong communication skills to provide a positive museum experience for the public.
