  • Description

    I'm a 21 year old artist and overall a bundle of energy and excitement! I'm a Fine Art graduate and I am currently working as a Florist. My two main goals in life are to see the world and make ridiculous amounts of art. Currently, I am working on converting a van to be able to travel Europe in!

    I would love to help out in anyway I can (even if this means learning new skills, which I am very keen on doing anyway) and would really enjoy/thrive with art based projects (I am happy to send a portfolio!). Nevertheless, I can put my hand to anything and - as you will see from my experience further down - I've done a lot for someone of my age! I have a high quality camera and good knowledge of social media, website making and general technological knowledge, so I am more than happy to help in these areas!

    I would be absolutely delighted if I get the chance to work with animals, donkeys and dogs are my favourite animals! I don't have much experience other than looking after pets or animal sitting but would really love to learn more and eventually have my own animal shelter/home stead in future. I love cooking all kinds of food (I am vegan but will cook meat if required). I'm currently learning German, and I'm always happy to teach/assist with English!

    Job experience-
    -Volunteered as a camp councillor at Happy Faces in Ighiu, Romania for 7 weeks.
    -Worked in retail as a florist assistant since the age of 14.
    -Ran my own online business selling hand painted home decor since the age of 15. (SuperShan's Creations)
    -Work experience in a pre-school.
    -Social media and design experience on a personal and professional level, from my own branding as an artist and being a committee member and social media curator for W.I.P. Exhibition (@wip.derbyfineart)
    -Received disability equality training from Attitude Is Everything
    -Working at the Venice Biennale in October 2019

    Creative experience-
    -Head of Costume and Makeup for Bilborough College’s production of Les Mis
    -Played Skylar in the university’s Musical Theatre Society’s production of Bring It On
    -Ran my own university radio show
    -BA Hons in Fine Art at University of Derby.
    -Exchange programme at The State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Germany from March - July 2018.
    -Painted a handful of murals and I am very keen to do more
    -Hired as a face painter and glitter artist for a handful of events!
    -Exhibited work as a fine artist in 6 exhibitions, and have sold my work in the UK and abroad

  • What else ...

    I'm a huge nature and animal lover. I love listening to music and most importantly dancing like a silly person! I love meeting new people and learning about different countries and cultures. I am a very colourful person and I'm usually seen covered in a rainbow array of outfits, makeup and glitter!!

    I love to have deep discussions and debates about the universe and anything/everything in it, laugh until my stomach hurts and make terrible puns! It's very rare that I'm seen without a smile on my face - even when I'm working I'm often singing - so there's never a dull moment! That being said, I'm a hard worker and always complete the task at hand with care and precision.
