Summary

I am an independent art curator with international experience.

My passion for contemporary, interactive and performance art has allowed me to develop skills as a creative thinker and organiser of artistic exhibitions.

My experience at Turner Contemporary in Margate, Kent has allowed a personal expansion of knowledge of up-and-coming contemporary installation art, modern works, traditional paintings and controversial projects, as well as working closely in collaborative performance based works.

As a Gallery co-ordinator for the Margate Gallery, I have developed skills in marketing, installing exhibitions, devising projects, gallery management, scheduling and programming.

I have worked with Proud Galleries, London, Folkestone Triennial, Estorick Art Gallery Islington and Limbo Arts within the United Kingdom; and also with the Nicholson Museum, Sydney and the Fairfield City Museum and Gallery in NSW, Australia.

I have a BA in Design for Theatre and Television in 2007 from Charles Sturt University, NSW, and a Master of Art Curatorship degree from The University of Sydney, Australia.
