    • I began working for Roberts & Stearn as a freelance framer and art technician installing works and building bespoke frames to conservations standards. Expanded knowledge of art handling developed through the installation and de-installation of artworks. The role developed into studio manager after a few months. Studio Manager was a highly administrative role, I managed the company calendar, studio stock, issued invoices, liaising with both clients and suppliers. I managed the company's accounts and budgeting. During my time at the company I project managed large framing projects and exhibition builds in contemporary art galleries around London.
