Pastel portrait on paper of Carmen Scott, a nurse working in COVID-19 ICU. Painted from a photograph of Carmen taken on her first day on this ward. Carmen later commented,
“Working during the pandemic as an ICU nurse I saw our team stick together with great morale, working in tough conditions, often isolated from children, families and friends, in unfamiliar environments and with new and difficult challenges. It will now take time to process the trauma we have all experienced as staff, patients and relatives.“
Painted as part of the fantastic #portraitsfornhsheroes initiative set up by @tomcroftartist to recognise and say thank you for the self-less and dedicated work of our NHS workers.
