My first son was born 8 weeks prematurely and was very poorly and we spent several weeks on the Neonatal Unit at Royal Derby Hospital. It was a very scary and worrying time for us as a family. It has been a privilege to be commissioned to work with the Neonatal HDU at UHCW. The staff are truly wonderful and awe-inspiring in every way, all dedicated to saving tiny lives. As an artist and as a mother I fully understand the stress and worry parents go through at what is the most anxious time of your life. I feel strongly that I can make a positive difference with a carefully considered colour palette and motif-centred designs. I always create images with the end users in mind, to make spaces and areas feel-less clinical. My son is now 10 and taller than me (nearly).
