We took a little time out to have a chat with Laura and find out more about her, here is what she had to say…
- 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 think the main object would be my kindle book, which I carry around everywhere when I’m at home. I imagine the painting like that scene in Sweeny Todd: me, standing up in front of a window with my arm extended in the air holding my kindle and saying “at last, my arm is complete”. Next to me, a table with my organiser open, my coloured pens, fun stickers, my headphones and a tambourine. As soon as the “Joseph Wright photo filter” is created I will make it a reality.
- If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
The pufferfish because it’s amazing and also because I love swimming and I miss living next to the sea.
- What makes you happy?
Learning new things (like new words or when I learnt that goats have rectangular pupils) and watching cat videos.
- What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
I love buying books, reading, spending time with my loved ones and dancing (not in that order).
