About me

 

I am a recent ‘Fine Art: Critical Practice’ graduate with a high 2:1 honours degree from the University of Brighton. My ideal profession is to sell, write about and curate art in the commercial art world. I enjoy all aspects of producing exhibitions, from developing a concept, researching the subject, arranging private views, entertaining buyers, curating and caring for the artworks. My ambition to work in the commercial art world was fuelled by my studies of the art market at university; I would absolutely love the chance to play a key role in the sale of artworks and liaise with exciting clientele. I crave a role that allows me to be a point of communication, where I can correspond with lots of new and interesting people. I have worked in the marketing and press departments for several exhibitions and greatly appreciated the opportunity to publish press releases. I am dedicated to thoroughly researching my projects, having worked as a writer, editor and archivist previously; I would jump at the opportunity to work like this again. I have been longing for the chance to work under managers and specialists in order that I can gain experience from professionals in the field; the chance to do this in a gallery would be absolutely invaluable to me.
