About me

 

Having recently graduated I am looking to pursue a career that will enhance my experience and professionalism in the art world. I am passionate, enthusiastic, hardworking and conscientious. I believe that my commitment and tenacity is reflected in the qualifications I have obtained to date. I work well when under pressure and through my degree and past work experience I have developed my ability to cope with stressful situations and to work quickly. I look forward to meeting new people and have a thirst for gaining valuable new experiences. I have an eye for creative opportunities where ever they may be and I am ambitious to succeed and be an asset to my place of work. As a practicing artist for many years my work has situated around the topic of taboo; often confronting the public with their prejudices in non-traditional gallery spaces. Using various mediums of sculpture and still image, my practice explores humanitarian issues to build awareness and promote subjects of controversy through a visual language.
