Work Experience

May 2010- Present

January 2022 - March 2022

March 2021 - June 2022

I  have been working as a self employed  tour guide in contemporary art and teaching mural, graffiti, stencil, drawing and sketching workshops. Clients include, Paramount Pictures, Entertainment Tonight, ASDA, Tkmax. I have also led workshops on a weekly basis to school and community groups as well as to the general public.

Work Placement at Look Creative Design (Digital Artist)

I had to work to briefs set by clients creating digital illustrations to be sold as NFT's. I was also tasked with developing concepts for NFT collections.

Linda Francis Sculpture Foundry/Art Collector

My role was a varied one due to this place been more than just a foundry. I was advisor to the owner of the company on which contemporary artwork he should buy at auction. I would collect and deliver pieces of artwork and do home visits to help with installation and hanging. I also helped out making picture frames and worked on welding and casting of the sculptures being made in the foundry.
