Hello, 

My name is Amy Grogan. I am a Sculpture graduate from The Glasgow School of Art. I am looking to get into the TV or Film industry, in particualr prop making. I spent my 4 years at art school researching various materials and making giant sculptures of real life objects. 

I am an extremely hard working person who is able learn new skills quickly and strives to achieve a new high standard of work at all times. My achievements to date are testimony to my hard work and ability. I have a warm personality and can quickly look at alternative solutions if a problem occurs.

I have a high level of interpersonal skills which I have developed both whilst at University and within my employment. I am able to communicate with people through a variety of ways including, telephone, email, face to face and body language allowing me to adapt between different forms of communication. I am a confident individual who is able to establish links and contacts within the required field.

In my job I am part of a team that has to work closely together to ensure all tasks are achieved safely. I have transferred these skills to support and develop teams at art school. I have worked collaboratively in a number of art projects including ones with peers and prisoners. I am a motivated individual who has self led my education.

I am a very hard working individual who has been used to working under pressure and to strict deadlines both at University and in my part time career, this has allowed me to develop full confidence within myself to perform tasks whilst under pressure.
