Jessica D. Griggs
About myself: I am responsible, enthusiastic, patient, friendly, honest, creative and always interested to learn new things. I am a fast learner and capable of setting my mind and all efforts to any task. I am careful in whatever I do, work efficiently and able to work well with or without a team. Creativity is my strong point, so problem solving skills are usually thinking outside the box to reorganise or evaluate alternative ideas that will better suit to the condition or task. I also hold grate importance to job guidelines, procedures, routines, time management, organisational skills etc.
I am fit, active, up for a challenge, enjoy meeting new people and meeting the needs and expectations in the line of work set by employers / clients / customers. I am also willing to complete other qualifications or short courses as required.
I am currently a self employed artist/designer, however this work is fairly limited and more of a side-line hobby business, so it would not get in the way of any other employment.
Art side of things: I enjoy making artworks, teaching art techniques, photography, designing & assisting in design concepts for businesses. Art & cultural development & history research is also an interest along with art exhibition organisation/management/design & developing new ideas for a range of areas including the visual/fine arts, graphic arts, media, fashion & culture.”
