Related professional activity

  • Prior to being awarded my Fellowship at Digswell Arts and embarking on life as an artist full time, I worked for ten years as a Web Editor and Designer for a variety of organisations including the British Library, the British Academy of Film & Television ArtsUniversity College London and Cancer Research UK.
  • In 2006 I worked on a volunteer project at the Terracotta Army Museum in Xi’an, China. My Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification enabled me to work with the local community and learn about Chinese traditions and crafts on an epic scale and interact with local communities.
