Portraits for NHS Heroes – Cowfold Artist Carole Rupniak
In June 2020, Carole participated in the “Portraits for NHS Heroes” where NHS key-workers receive a free portrait via a scheme instigated by artist Tom Croft, finalist of the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2018.
She was contacted by Evie, a Junior Doctor at Oxford University Hospitals who provided her with some photos, taken in her lunch break.
“This oil painting is a very meaningful piece to me, as I was humbled by her personal experience of these relentless times, and by her complete devotion to her work. A true NHS Hero!”
In September, Carole was delighted to have appeared on ‘BBC South Today’ (along with another artist Ben Laughton-Smith who also took part) to talk about her experience. Watch the programme below.
