About me

Based in Bath (UK), I'm a practising artist as well as a creative freelancer. I work on a range of local projects, from marketing for small businesses to assisting an artist with a community garden. My experience within diverse organisations and businesses has given me insight into a depth of areas which surround the creative industry, as well as providing me with knowledge on how to develop my own art practice for exhibitions, curation and selling. I'm looking for more projects that offer me further insight and experience within art that are inclusive and inspiring.
