About me

I am an enthusiastic Fine Art graduate with previous experience in artist assistant roles, professional exhibition installation and customer service - as well as my outstanding research, organisation, and communication skills. After graduating from University of the Arts London with 1:1 (BA) Hons in Fine Art: Painting, I have worked on collaborative artistic design projects such as ‘Feminist Internet Futures Studio, London.’ and ‘UK Young Artist: Placement and Displacement, Seoul, South Korea’. During these collaborations I have learnt the value of collaborative work, communication and creative skills.
