The Portraits for NHS Heroes was created by artist Tom Croft on Instagram. Artists painted free portraits for NHS staff and care workers to express respect and gratitude for the work that they have been doing throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
"Like so may people, I found lockdown incredibly challenging. I will always treasure the portrait that Brigid painted for me which made me smile in the midst of a very difficult time. Although the last few months have been challenging, and often very dark, they have t taught me a great deal about myself, and the portrait will always be there to remind me of that."
