I am delighted to announce that as a Hitchin-based illustrator (see work above), I am working with the ‘Lister Neonatal Families Group’ and the hospital to develop a large scale piece of art along the corridor which leads to the Lister Neonatal Unit.
The aim is to transform the long, blank wall, which currently greets parents on the approach to the neonatal unit into a stunning celebration of the lives of the babies cared for there, past, present and future. Parents will be invited to have a motif for their child or an element of their children’s name(s) added to the mural design in return for a small donation to the neonatal unit.
I was very lucky that the Families Group committee loved the design I put forward in the bid for the work, and this is now being refined in conjunction with staff and parents.
We are hoping to fund the project through a mixture of grants and sponsorship so that the project can raise as much money as possible for the neonatal unit. If you know of any businesses or local organisations which might be willing to contribute, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use this email address to register your interest in having your child’s name feature in the mural – we will then keep you updated as the project progresses.
