About me

I'm an independent curator with a special interest in twentieth century and contemporary British art, architecture and design. With over 15 years' experience as an arts professional with skills in arts administration, curating, research, fundraising, publishing and making exhibitions with emerging, mid career and established British artists I'm currently developing major loan exhibitions with a number of UK and international institutions.
