I am currently studying MA Arts and Project Management at Birmingham School of Art BCU after graduating from my BA Fine Art in July 2019.
Alongside my Masters, I interned for the Coventry Biennial specifying in the operations and logistics department where I helped with the general overseeing of the Biennial. I started in September and finished when the Biennial ended in October. My role included conversations with the artists and their work; how they intend to get their work to the venue and where their work will be displayed; creating spreadsheets for volunteer rotas and arrangements; measuring and making vinyl for the venues and helping set up and build the show.
Currently I am working at the RBSA Gallery as a Front of House Gallery Assistant. I was lucky enough to have my work exhibited as part of the Next Wave Exhibition in February 2020.
