I am an independent art critic and curator. My curatorial experience includes working as the collections manager’s assistant at Cheltenham’s art gallery & museum and as the Research Curator at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum. I have also been the curatorial assistant at the Ashmolean Museum, where I was responsible for devising and organising the Museum’s forthcoming touring exhibition about JMW Turner’s early architectural paintings.
After graduating from The University of Warwick with First Class Honours in English and Comparative Literature, I spent a year living in London immersed in art: I completed a Masters in The History of Art at UCL, enjoyed going to many art events, talks and exhibitions, and ran round the city (as well as to Bristol and Scarborough) reviewing exhibitions for magazines and online platforms.
This blog is a space for me to share my enthusiasm for art and consider its critical potentials. In addition to original posts, this blog is also where I document the majority of my writing so that it acts as a portfolio of my work.
The ‘Photography’ page presents compilations of my photographs, and the ‘Artwork’ page records my projects and experiments in applied art, particularly textiles. The photographs interspersed throughout my articles are shots I have taken.
I hope you enjoy reading and looking at my blog. I welcome feedback and thoughts on the subjects I address. If you would like me to write for you, please do get in touch.
I have a second blog (theyearinlondon.wordpress.com), where I share ideas about events I have seen and places I have explored during my time as an MA student in London.
