The Portraits for NHS Heroes project was created by artist Tom Croft on Instagram. Artists have been painting free portraits for NHS and care workers to express gratitude and respect for the work that they have been doing throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Like so many 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 taught me a great deal about myself, and the portrait will always be there to remind me of that.’
