Liz Warren

Midlands Maker Challenge Administrator

We took a little time out to have a chat with Liz and find out more about her, 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?

An atlas or Lonely Planet guide.  I love travelling and I’m always planning a trip or adventure somewhere.


2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why

I’m most like the puffer fish.  Mainly very calm and swim around minding my own business.  But when danger presents itself ……..

3. What makes you happy?

My family and friends, a nice cup of tea, a cold glass of wine, spotify and a travel website.


What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)

I do yoga, love to walk , explore and see new places and things
