What are the key responsibilities you maintain for your practice?
My main responsibilities include making sure everyone has what they need. Firstly I have to make sure I am making good work, and that the printer gets it in time to deliver to the framer. If I'm doing an interview or commission I have to make sure that party is getting my full attention and that emails are answered promptly. There are certainly obvious tools like software and hardware that I need, but anything that I'm unfamiliar with I can usually learn about through the internet. Networking is essential to build relationships with other artists, curators and collectors. It's one of my favorite parts of the job ;D
