CHRISTINE CONNOLLY

Christine made the following works in the Art in Hospital sessions in the Stroke Rehabilitation Unit, Langlands Building at the QEUH in 2019. Christine attended the sessions regularly and for an extended period of time. The images below follow a chronological order, with the drawing of the apples below being the first piece of work that Christine made in the Art in Hospital sessions. Christine worked both from imagination and from observing still life objects and imagery from books, using watercolour pencils, watercolour paints and acrylic paints, and using her non-dominant hand to draw and paint.

Thanks to Christine for kindly allowing us to share her work.
