About me
I started my career working with galleries by volunteering for the Crafts Council. There, my skills in reading visitors and deciphering their state of mind for a brilliant visiting experience, combined with my attention to detail and readiness for any issues that might come up during a day, led me to become an event assistant volunteer during events at the Crafts Council.    My time at the Crafts Council prepared me to become the 2022 recipient of The Stanley Picker Traineeship at Matt’s Gallery.
