We met with Kirsty to discover more about her, here is what we found out…

  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?
    It would have to be a huge fishbowl glass filled with my favourite gin and tonic (and ice and a slice of course) I just LOVE gin!
  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    I’d have to choose two –  as I’m a bit of a ‘momma bear’ and am good at giving hugs I’d choose the sun bear but I’d also choose the pheasant – their feathers are all shiny and sparkly and I love a bit of bling ……apparently they are quite noisy too but the less said about that, the better!
  1. What makes you happy?
    Family, friends, socialising , eating out, gin, summer sunshine, enjoying life and having fun.
  2. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    I love to spend time with my family and friends  which is  generally  a noisy affair and  usually  involves eating, drinking and chatting all mixed in with lots of laughter
