I'm a trained and active Fine artist, but have also worked in the design industry as a Project Manager for 7 years. Previously to that I trained and worked as a Creative Artworker, so I have great Adobe skills as well as the usual Office skills required for PM work. Over the years I've been commissioned to write short critical texts for various exhibitions including one for a show of now Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price. I've also curated exhibitions and events - taking them from conception to realisation on very tight budgets. I have also been a visiting lecturer, at The Slade School of Fine Art and Greenwich University. I'm interested in opportunities that might overlap some of these areas, and that will stimulate, excite and challenge me.
