About me

Since my BA I have gained managerial experience in London’s oldest commercial art gallery and an MA in Interior and Spatial Design. As gallery manager, I coordinated 6 members of staff and an intern program, 22 artists, 12 artists estates, 6 national and international art fairs, 36 exhibitions, 19 catalogues and the everyday demands of consignments, framing, website redesign, organising press, transport, conservation, HR, invoicing, billings, building maintenance etc. My understanding of spatial design in fine art lead me to study the commercial side of interior and architectural design. I am now able to manage design projects and have creative input simultaneously.
