Staff profile - Marianne Walker
Luisa Foster is now on Maternity Leave, and we wait with bated
breath for her happy news. I'd like to introduce myself as I will
be covering her post for a year; my name is Marianne Walker and
this is not the first time that I have worked at the Kennel Club.
Back in 2012 I was the Field Trials Sub-Committee Secretary, a post
that I left in order to undertake an Artists Residency at the
Florence Trust in Islington.
Following the completion of my residency I worked in a gallery
and event space in Old Street and am very happy to have the
opportunity to return to the Kennel Club. I am still learning the
collection but can already see how spectacular it is, and how
important the collection is for demonstrating the longevity and
value of the Kennel Club's work.
I am very fortunate to have the inestimable support of Valerie
Foss, Paul MacBeth, Ciara Farrell and Heidi Hudson, and am
anticipating some great exhibitions in the Gallery over the next
year - please do come and see us.
