About me

I am an enthusiastic and hard working graduate with excellent research, analysis and communication skills. I recently completed my Art History BA, specialising in technological change and contemporary lens based artistic practices. I am currently looking for experience in the cultural industries, particularly art galleries and museums. I am keen to build on my client facing skills and also learn more about working in PR and communications within the broader landscape of the art world.
