About me

After studying as an artist, I now want to use my knowledge and skills of style, space, colour and form to develop a career in creative direction, events and dressing. I have a wide range of making skills alongside a sharp eye for detail. I am hardworking and organised, and thrive in environments with a creative buzz.

  • During my internship at CNB Gallery, I was given the opportunity to get involved in a whole range of tasks and responsibilities. These included: HIX Award 2015 – My main project whilst at the gallery was managing their annual graduate art competition, the HIX Award. This is the third year the award has been running, and this year I wanted to make it bigger and better than before! I designed, built and maintained the event’s first website using Wix ( and created an online application form. I also designed all the marketing material including flyers and business cards, and distributed these around London. I visited (almost) all of the Degree Shows in the city, networking and encouraging people to apply, and was also in touch with tutors from various Universities about promoting the award to their students. I ran the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites for the HIX Award, which other members of the gallery team helped to maintain. When applications came in, I created a structured catalogue on Google Drive as well as a tracking spreadsheet. I increased the number of applications from last year fourfold, which was a great achievement for both the gallery and myself. I am currently in the process of creating a report reviewing the award and how CNB can continue and build on its success in the coming years.
