About me

Currently in my final year at Kingston University studying BA Fine Art I am seeking a career in the industry that will not only play to my strengths but will also challenge me to continually exceed my abilities. You will find me an artistic, ambitious, hardworking, sociable, organised and polite individual with the drive to succeed in any given task. Having worked in many creative roles, from interior design, market researcher and photographer, I have honed my skills as a very capable and adaptive worker. My most recent artwork, as can be viewed on my website, is based on interior aesthetics.
