Dear Carl Matthewman,
I would like to apply for your Production Assistant position that I saw advertised on Arts Hub. I am a Visual Artist who is looking for a creative role in order to utilise and add to my existing skills. I am very impressive by James Glancy Design’s seasonal decorations and urban art projects, they are fresh and innovative and eyecatching, and I would be very excited to work for such a company.
I think I would be a perfect candidate for this role because as well as being very practical, mentally flexible and used to hard work, I am creative, intuitive and extremely knowledgeable about art and design. My current role as a Postwoman for TNT requires me to work very long hours and complete tasks quickly and accurately, such as sorting post and making sure all my mail is delivered on the correct day. Similarly, in my role as a groom I was responsible for the welfare of 20 horses. My previous roles include customer service positions at Cafe Rouge and local pubs and cafes, and for these roles I needed to be mentally flexible, in order to do a range of tasks, whilst communicating with effectively with customers and other staff and working very long hours without a break.
I can draw accurately and in detail using a wide range of materials and have extensive life drawing experience. My mother is a Graphic Designer and I have helped her make creative and critical decisions on her projects, and am an experienced user of Photoshop. My work is mainly painting based, with print making and practical woodwork skills. I have an extensive knowledge of sculptors and designers throughout history, an intuitive sense of design and an awareness of truth to materials, as required by my Fine Art Degree. My work can be seen at the following addresses: http://cargocollective.com/hattiebattenartwork/ and http://hattiebattenart.tumblr.com/.
Please find my enclosed CV. I have enclosed two CVs in case the format does not work. Thank you for considering my application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
