Portraits for NHS Heroes during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Collection of time lapsed videos, interviews
and NHS staff receiving portraits
2020 and the Covid-19 Pandemic has seen a tragic loss of life and changed the way we live our lives forever.
whilst the country went into lockdown, the NHS and Keyworkers battled to save lives on the frontline. To say thankyou, Tom Croft started the '#portraitsfornhsheroes' movement. He encouraged artists to offer a free portrait to an NHS worker during the pandemic.
I had already completed a painting for my daughter who is an A&E doctor, and one of her colleagues but wanted to carry on to shine a light on and celebrate the amazing staff we have within the NHS some who are my work colleagues as I also am a Nurse.
It has been a real honour to paint each one and hear stories of people going above and beyond during the pandemic. One of my portraits appeared on Sky News and was interviewed on Radio 5 live and Radio Norfolk.
Gallery of the portraits I have completed so far are on this page. as well as video clips of paintings being completed and NHS workers receiving their portraits below.
Thankyou so, so much from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to paint you all and sharing your amazing stories which have not only looked after our loved ones but lifted everyone's spirits in the darkest of times.
