"I chose Rosalind Davis because of her breadth of knowledge and experience of professional practice. Rosalind's careful, thoughtful and insightful observations helped me 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." - Rich White
"I approached Rosalind 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."

FEEDBACK FROM ARTISTS
"Truly inspirational" - Philip Hall Patch
"You made me feel really comfortable; having two artists to give portfolio advice is twice as helpful and let's be honest, if you don't have your own successful practice there's not much point in giving advice, so I think the best part of my portfolio review is the links and advice you gave in regards to your own practice, professional networks and knowledge of artists/artist groups that were the most helpful for me. Finally, I have to say that you both did your homework and the time that you spent looking at my website, artist statement and CV before my session was amazingly generous and made the portfolio review so much richer. I think Rosalind Davis and Annabel Tilley have a fantastic formula for giving artists value for money through Zeitgeist Art Projects and I highly recommend their portfolio review sessions." - Shelley Rae
"The session has really raised my expectations of getting my work shown with concrete ideas of how to go about it. I would like to thank both very much for helping me change my perspective." - Simon Fell
"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."
"Thank you for all the great advice you gave. I really enjoyed analysing my work from a professional, aesthetic, and practical vantage point. I highly recommend their portfolio review sessions."
