Lifelong Learning Programmer

- 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 be painted surrounded by pots of flowers, to show my love of nature and colour.
- If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
I would be a fox, one that lives in the countryside rather that the city. I am a solitary creature that prefers socialising in small groups and I have an inquisitive nature. I have also been known to stash food away for later. One night I came face to face with a fox on the London Road. We stood staring at each other for some time. Maybe it was a distant relative?
- What makes you happy?
I don’t like sitting still. I am happiest when I’m tinkering and pottering. Planting, fixing, making, painting. A project gives me purpose and that makes me happy. I am also partial to de-bobbling jumpers!
- What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
I love walking in the countryside and noticing the animals I meet on my way. I also love doing things that I can get completely lost in, like painting and sewing. Seeing something creative emerge is the best feeling. Unsurprisingly for a lifelong learning programmer, I am endlessly curious and want to find out as much as I can about things I don’t know yet. So much to learn and so little time!
