Hand Painted By
Claire Heapy

I finally finished the portrait I’ve been working on for months

Sarah – 61x122cm oil on wood.

I find things like this hard to put in to words, which is why I paint – but I’ll try. Sarah is one of my oldest, closest friends and she has recently decided to walk the difficult, emotional path of becoming a nurse. I’ve seen the NHS and our society in a different light from listening to her experiences, and all I can conclude is that we are all absolutely indebted to troopers like Sarah.
