Portraits for NHS Heroes

In July 2020, I answered a call out on Instagram for artists to paint a free portrait for NHS heroes and I was inundated with responses. Unfortunately I only had a few spare days so I could only do portraits for the first 2 who responded:

This is Janet Davies, a midwife who retired on 3rd July from Singleton Hospital Maternity Unit, after giving 40 years to the mums of Swansea, this was requested by a colleague of hers as a retirement gift.
I used the most vibrant colours possible to continue with the rainbow theme in support of the NHS.


This is Clair Miller, she is a dietitian working on the acute wards at Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen.


I then got another request several weeks later from an NHS keyworker who still had not been matched with an artist:

This is Kim Davies, an ambulance technician based in Dalkeith, Scotland.


Then in May 2021, I had another request by an NHS keyworker who had been matched with another artist, but had never received her portrait:

This is Lynne Deuchaurs, Staff Nurse, Out Patient’s Department, St John’s Hospital, Livingston.

In September 2021 I was asked to do another by Lyn Gunn, a colleague of Lynne Deuchaurs.

This is Lyn Gunn, Staff Nurse in Plastics and Orthopaedics at St. John’s Hospital, Livingston, Scotland.
