I am a second-year student at the University of Leeds studying BA History of Art. Two years ago I completed my Foundation Diploma in Fine Art, and continue practical work in my spare time alongside my academic studies. I am looking for experience working for an organisation or institution that operates in a creative manner, whether that be a museum or a magazine. I am enthusiastic and friendly with a positive approach to all elements of working life.
- After HoursThis series of photographs was taken during my time working at Boutique Cinema, Everyman. I would regularly be assigned 'closing' shifts whereby I was left in the cinema 'after hours', which inspired this body of work. I was fascinated by the concept of a space which was usually full of people being entirely empty, and the cinematic effect of the lighting and movement throughout the process of closing.
- OverlookedI made this two line drawings as part of a series for a project named 'overlooked'. These two take a Birdseye view perspective on details of the everyday which are commonly overlooked. I used small amounts of colour to highlight certain elements such as rooftops and cars which are frequently dismissed in our everyday movement and activities.
Salad Box AssistantLeeds University Union
London, United KingdomFull Time
I have held this position at my University Union throughout my time at Leeds. Despite finding balancing academic work alongside this role, I find the challenging rewarding and something which will prepare me greatly for life after graduation. My creative side has also managed to flourish as we are prompted to offer our input on seasonal decorations or events ideas to promote the various outlets in the Union. Furthermore, I have met like-minded individuals who have become good friends and my communication skills have improved significantly.

- Cardinal Vaughan School, 89 Addison Rd, Kensington, London W14 8BZ, UK
I transferred to Cardinal Vaughan for my two years at sixth form level, I studied English Literature, Economics, Politics and Art. I was awarded an A in English Lit at AS level and continued the 3 other subjects to receive ABB. My time here was an entirely different and more challenging experience than my 5 years at Surbiton, but nonetheless it taught me a lot about myself and which environments I work best in.

Young Guardian Journalist SchemeDuring this scheme we were required to produce a piece of writing once a week, therefore being organised and creative in your ideas was essential in order to succeed. I throughly enjoyed the challenge and gaining a glimmer of insight into the working life of a journalist.
