  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 be depicted with a camera as I am always taking photos and trying to capture the world around me! Whether this be a quick snap on my mobile, or facing the elements with my DSLR, I’m pretty sure this is one of the items I could not live without.

 

  1. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why? I would be the penguin as I love chilly climates and swimming (and they have an unbelievably cute walk!) 

 

  1. What makes you happy? The thing that makes me the happiest is spending time with my friends and family, especially with my furry best friend, Sophie.

 

  1. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously) In my spare time I enjoy visiting new places, trying new foods and seeing new (and old) Art!
