Daisy Rodney.


Hi, I’m Daisy. I grew up trudging through the muddy hills of Dorset & Devon but went a little too far and ended up in London studying Theatre and Film at Brunel University. I still refuse to choose between my two great loves and have gone on to explore stage design and lighting after specialising in alternative film. Now, I’m a helicopter parent of one peace lily (Pickle) and am looking to kick off a career in arts administration after having a few weird and wonderful jobs post-graduating.

Your ultimate desert island disc track:

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Roberta Flack. This version of the song was played as the wake-up music aboard Apollo 17 on their last day in Lunar orbit before returning to earth, thus ending the last manned explorations of the Moon. I think it’d be pretty good on an island too.

What was the last book that made you cry, or laugh out loud? (or both!)

A Laugh and cry! Ghosts by Dolly Alderton, I’m heartbroken letting it go.

If you had to be locked inside one gallery overnight, which would it be and why?

More of a museum but the V&A. There’s just so much more than I could ever see in one day, so maybe a day and a night could work?

If you could live inside one painting or sculpture, what would it be?

J.M.W. Turner’s Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway. Oh to be one of the people on a train to somewhere, looking moodily out into the beautiful rain.

Who would play you in the film of your life?

Jack Black. I know he won’t fail me.
