As portrait of St Clare Hospice nursing assistant, Sarah Lord has been drawn by artist Sarah Harvey.
The drawing is part of a national campaign by artists to thank NHS and keyworkers for their work on the front line during the coronavirus pandemic.
The campaign #portraitsfornhsheroes was started by Oxford-based artist Tom Croft who offered to paint a key worker’s portrait in an Instagram post – and has now led to over 500 artists giving away free portraits to front line workers around the world.
Sarah Harvey, who is a contemporary painter based in Sawbridgeworth, was inspired to join the campaign as a way to give something back to health care staff and key
workers caring for people during the Coronavirus pandemic.
She said: ““I have drawn a pencil sketch of Sarah from a photograph of her taken after a long night shift caring for patients in their own homes.”
