I was watching the BBC news and the journalist Clive Myrie did a report from the Royal London Hospital on NHS workers vulnerable to the Coronavirus. Irene was working in intensive care and she spoke with such care and compassion that I was moved and inspired to paint her. A few weeks ago we met for the first time so I was able to give Irene her painting as a gift (see below). It was very moving to be able to talk with her about her experiences - her honesty, care and kindness shone through, just like it did in her interview. We will of course stay in touch.
