About me

 

I have a vast background of retail experience and feel I have a very good understanding of customer relations and customer service. I also have experience working with events, and managing staff. I am a hard working, reliable individual who can work well in a team, but can also work independently to achieve goals and reach targets. Along with my career in retail I am also an artist who works with 2D collage, my pieces are inspired by dreams, music and folklore.I have curated several solo exhibitions and taken part in groups shows at London’s Hoxton Hotel, Dalston Superstore, Rich Mix and Curio Cabal. I have also participated in exhibitions and projects with The Ministry of Stories, Art Against Knives, and Talent House. My work has also been exhibited in New York City, Bulgaria’s music festival Meadows In The Mountains and the Vienna Art Showcase. Along with this I've had various commissions including The Prince Alfred pub in Bayswater, and have created EP cover art for singer Raf Vilar. My work has been featured in Aesthetica Magazine, Veux Magazine, Mia Le Journal and U’Niq Magazine. My most recent project, an art zine entitled 'Close Your Eyes/Mini Mind Holidays', is available to buy in many stores across London including Foyles, Housmans, Lik+Neon and Selfridges.
