Portraits for the NHS

I was delighted to participate in the Portraits for NHS Heroes initiative. The idea of the scheme is to recognise the efforts of frontline NHS workers during the Covid crisis. Artists offer to create portraits for free through their Instagram pages and NHS workers contact them to request a painting.

I matched up with Cameron who is an Operations Manager for West Midlands Ambulance Service. He has worked for them since he finished his paramedic science degree at the age of 23. He’s currently acting up as a Tactical Commander for the region during the COVID-19 crisis.

Both Cameron and his partner who nominated him were delighted with the painting which is on its way to their home in the Midlands.

To see over 700 paintings from this incredible art initiative (including my one of Cameron) please visit the exhibition website: https://artsandculture.google.com/project/healthcare-heroes
