About me

 

I am a positive and reliable individual with a ‘can-do’ attitude. I pride myself in maintaining high work standards and enjoy problem solving. My skills in design have allowed me to get involved with a number of projects including various pieces created for theatrical use. I am currently looking for a position to engage my creative flair and allow me to progress my career. I feel having experience in many different creative forms will allow me to move my career forward. In my spare time, I am a designer and dressmaker. My designed work regularly attends photo shoots and a growing collection of my work has been published in magazines and used in live fashion shows. On a freelance basis I regularly work as an arts coach with young people from varying backgrounds. I have grown to love this element of my life and knowing the skills, disciplines and passion that I can show to young people and how they can put them to good use in everyday life has become a constant inspiration to me. I am now looking for a more permanent position in this field, and to join an organisation where I can see growth both on a personal level, on from a company perspective.

Work history

Currently

Arts Coach & Dressmaker

LET Me Play

Mar 2013
  • Let Me Play is an organisation that runs various after school workshops for children, these are mostly centred around sports and education, I have run an art workshop for over two years, encouraging the children to be creative and allowing them to use materials that they often wouldn’t have the opportunity to use. I run workshops in different schools throughout the week and also have a busy and much sought after ‘holiday time’ workshop where children can come and spend the day and often the week. Within this role I have to be constantly thinking up new ideas to keep the children engaged in the different activities, these can vary from creating masks through to spray painting t shirts. Being in charge of upwards of 30 children is demanding and requires a lot of attention to detail, planning and organisational skills. Whilst I very much enjoy working for this company and have seen a rewarding amount of progression from some of the children I have worked with, I feel that it is now time to move on and focus on my own career and my own goals.
