About me
As Arts & Events Coordinator at Bow Arts, I have assisted with the Nunnery Gallery exhibition and event programme for the past 2 years. I have experience in art handling and exhibition curation, often listing with technicians, archivists and visiting curators. My aim is to develop a community focussed programme to engage local people, with a priority on getting young people interested in the arts. As a Creative Producer I have collaborated with various multi-disciplinary arts organisations — including the British Council, Culture 24 and London College of Fashion — and freelance creatives to develop artistic programmes, exploring both physical and digital activity. My previous administrative experiences have seen me work with database management systems including Mailchimp, Hootsuite, Wordpress and Wix. I often assist with the development of marketing and communications campaigns, as well as project budgets and schedules, reporting information back to my seniors and stakeholders. With a background in Illustration, I am well versed in creative content production. I understand the physicality and practicality of materials, while also being highly proficient with Adobe Creative Suite. I enjoy communicating and interacting with members of the public, artists and arts professionals alike.

    Team LeaderELCAF
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    I assisted the ELCAF team with the set-up of the venue, including signing in exhibitors and guiding them to their stalls. I briefed my team of volunteers, and oversaw the selling of tickets and merchandise, handling complaints from exhibitors and customers quickly and efficiently. I looked after the main festival space, including setting-up and facilitating workshops, talks and screenings. I welcomed visitors, promoting events and activities around the festival, communicating any alterations to the schedule clearly and effectively. At the end of the day, I guided the volunteers through the de-installation of the main space, closing the venue and making sure everything was done in time.

    International Images for Science 2016Royal Photographic Society ( RPS)
    I was shortlisted for the International Images for Science 2016, with my image featured in the catalogue as well as the exhibition itself, which is currently touring the U.K. My work was a visual depiction of Ferrofluid - a magnetic liquid that acts as a solid when in the presence of a magnetic field. It is a visualisation of intangible forces such as magnetism, and how science and art can interact.
