A fine art student has drawn a portrait of a nurse wearing PPE by using the word hero over and over. Jessica Wilcox-Drew, 18, of Bradley Stoke near Bristol, created the piece after being inspired by NHS key workers. The image took about 15 hours to complete. Ms Wilcox-Drew is going to have her picture made into postcards which will be sold for NHS Charities Together. After taking part in the clap for carers and seeing so much about the work of nurses during the coronavirus pandemic, she said she wanted to do a picture “thanking nurses and giving them recognition”.
