Jane Bevan

Co - Production Curator

We took a little time to find out more about Jane, here is what she had to say…

  1. Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
    I would choose my walking boots and a map…comfy, practical and if only I had more time I could walk a bit further!

  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    The bear…..he looks like he needs a cuddle!

  3. What makes you happy?
    Good food, good company, my children remembering mothers day. 
  4. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    I spend most of my spare time walking the dog ( most badly behaved in the village) and making dinosaur cakes.
