Tara is a Support Care Night Nurse for the NHS on a C19 ward. Her sister took up my offer to make a portrait of an NHS front-liner for #portraitsfornhsheroes. Among the photos she provided for reference was a small, low resolution, close-up taken by a colleague during a hastily snatched break. Despite the paucity of three-dimensional information this snap provided, the narrative power of the image was compelling: I had no choice but to take on the challenge. Tara has been working selflessly on the frontline throughout the pandemic. It was a privilege to be able to celebrate her courage and sacrifice in this way.

My thanks go to Tom Croft for the #portraitsfornhsheroes initiative and to Tara’s sister for facilitating the making of this sculpture.
