About me

 

Since I Graduated from Goldsmiths University with a 2:1 honours degree in History of Art, I have worked between restaurants and galleries. Working within those fast-paced environments have enabled me to work easily under-pressure and develop skills such as: • Communication • Customer service • Events and project management • Organisational and Time management skills • Planning and coordination • Problem solving • Research, analyse and writing I am currently looking to take another leap in the art world.

Education

2014

Bachelor of Arts: History of Art

Goldsmiths University

Oct 2011 - Sep 2014
  • London, UK
  • History of Art at Goldsmiths university is centred on the thoughts behind art, how philosophy, psychology and sociology are intertwined and represented in art - or on a broader scale in visual culture.  This course opens a new way of thinking and helps to develop a work rigor as most projects and essays are to organise and produce on our owns.
