"I chose Rosalind Davis because of her breadth of knowledge and experience of professional practice. Rosalind's careful, thoughtful and insightful observations helped me to evaluate my practice and identify key aspects of my work. Through this I gained a better understanding of my practice, and how to communicate this understanding. This led to a new, clear and concise statement of practice, which in turn led to a complete overhaul of my website. I now feel I am better equipped to move my career forward."

I approached Rosalind for a one to one session, for advice and guidance with my application for a residency. I am so glad that I did. The advice was invaluable and the assistance attentive. Rosalind really helped me to give absolute clarity to my statement.
"Thank you for all the great advice you gave. I really enjoyed analyzing my work from a professional, aesthetic, and practical vantage point.I highly recommend their portfolio review sessions."
"I think that may have been the most valuable 60 minutes of my career as an artist. I appreciate the fact that you spent so much time seriously considering my work and the fact that you did helps me believe in my own project as a serious professional endeavour."
