About me

I am a hard working, creative individual with strong writing and communication skills. I have attained an education within the arts studying both art and design and design and special effects and makeup. Following experience within the arts I have continued my career by working for beauty brands within press relations and brand development. I am now looking to take a step back from working within beauty and put my industry knowledge to good use working within an arts establishment. I have excellent people skills with extensive experience working within a customer facing role and also one to one. I have a hands on approach with strong practical skills such as setting up events and managing visual merchandise. My previous roles have also allowed me to manage and organise budgets for projects and campaigns. These duties also include organising invoices and raising cost estimates with clients. Personal Skills I have a real passion for art and design and strive to continually learn and discover new information. My friendly and polite disposition has enabled me to gain excellent customer service skills both within public and head office positions.
