About me

My previous experiences have allowed me to collaborate with various multi-disciplinary organisations, such as the British Council, Bow Arts, East London Dance, London College of Fashion and the V&A. Curating a variety of specialist arts events has allowed me to gain knowledge of the wider arts and events sector, and I am always open to exciting opportunities within the fields of galleries, exhibitions and events, curation and arts programming. I am not afraid to get stuck into all aspects of a project, and have evidenced a high level of diligence and meticulous attention to detail while assisting with practical exhibition arrangements, including the storage, packing and transportation of artworks. I have also collaborated with freelance technicians and visiting curators on the installation of exhibitions and related events, seeing every project from conception through to completion. Interacting with volunteers, members of the public, practicing artists and arts professionals has enabled me to develop my communication and interpersonal skills, meaning that I am equally comfortable working independently or as part of a team. I have administrative experience managing databases such as Mailchimp and Hootsuite, as well as creative programs like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign to create promotional material. I am always looking for opportunities to work in a creative environment that celebrates and explores the boundaries of art, design and performance, and the potential for cross-disciplinary collaboration within that.
