Pictures for a new hospital

I had a lovely afternoon on friday being shown around the beautiful new Southmead hospital. I had a sneak peak at it all; the wards, the beautiful big light public spaces, the gardens and some of its new art collection!


The reason for the visit was to see some of my work in situ, they have recently bought some 25 pieces of my work to add to the collection (900 or works in total)  it was pretty exciting! 

I don't really know much about hospitals - because thankfully I haven't had to spend much time in one - but apparently with infection control the new thinking is for wards to all have single rooms- so with 500 rooms in this new mega hospital, its quite a specatular claim to say that EVERY room has a work of art in it!... Art makes you healthy - we all know that!

So if you find yourself on ward 9 - the rehabilitation ward - you will be able to enjoy some of my little things in life, if you work on that ward and want to chill in the quiet room, you can hang out with a few best combinations, or if you are in out-patients stroll down a corridor peppered with 'Hannah Broadway's'!



Many many Thanks to Ruth Sidgwick for her support, energy and of course great taste!

  2. Congratulations! How fantastic that they bought 25 pieces of your art! I have no doubt that they will help people feel better and get better. We will try and squeeze in a visit there on Friday - to the corridors only!
