Veronika says: "The subjects in this paining are both mental health nurses and it was only thanks to one of their colleagues who helped me through a difficult time that I was able to attempt this - my first portrait in oils and my first attempt at painting using oils since I was fourteen. It was therefore an absolute privilege to give something back as the work they do is so vital and life-saving. The opportunity to take part in this incredible initiative has rekindled my confidence and passion for painting in an extraordinary way. Many thanks to Tom Croft and all the excellent artists who have taken part in this movement!"
Sitter Quote: "Thank you so much to Veronika for her kindness and painting a picture that is so close to me and my partner. This is a memory we will cherish forever."
