About me

 

I have graduated from the University of Kent with a first degree in History and Philosophy of Art, going on to complete my Masters degree in Curating with distinction. At present I am a TA within the private sector of teaching. I am a confident and diligent person who works well with fellow employees and within the work environment. I am passionate about art and have a good knowledge of its practice, conservation, curating and history. I would like to pursue further my passion for the curating of art (along with its respective histories and theories) by expanding my cultural knowledge – which in turn would increase my social and historical awareness within the public sector, and would help to broaden my intellectual and creative scope. I pride myself on having good organisational skills, which I have developed through juggling my university work with playing hockey and with my job experiences. I’ve always thrived in team situations and love contributing and being part of a group.
