I would like to apply for a position at your institution. Please find my attached resume.

I graduated from Fine Arts Academy in Poznan, Poland in 1992 – received Master Degree of Fine Arts in painting, graphic arts and sculpture. Ever since I graduated, I have accumulated many years of experience in theater prop making, art restoration, story board drawing, sculpting, construction and installation – working both here (since 1998) and in Poland. Over the last few years I have worked mainly as a contract sculptor finishing climbing walls and waterfalls for “real rock” effects. In between those contract jobs I did art and antique restorations, painted portraits and orthodox icons at my studio, here in Denver. I have full confidence that with my experience and enthusiasm I will fulfill all the requirements for the position you are seeking to fill.
Looking forward to your positive decision.

Sincerely,
Mirolaw Solowiej
