In December 2020 I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. In January I was admitted to ward 66 Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Glasgow and on the next day I had my tumour surgically removed by Mr Grevas. I then spent a week under the care of the staff of ward 66.
I’m a retired police officer (2012) and before that was also was an art student at Glasgow School of Art for two years. I now paint and draw for pleasure. The care given to me as a patient was tremendous and as I thank you to all the staff and neurosurgeons who looked after me I am doing portrait drawings of the nursing staff and two full length figure paintings of the two neurosurgeons who removed my tumour.
Since leaving hospital I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy at the Beatson which I complete in 2 days time. During this time I’ve completed both neurosurgeon paintings and so far 12 portrait drawings of my nurses. I still have 10 to do. Once completed hopefully before the end of April. I would like to present the drawings and paintings to the staff of ward 66, but do not know how to go about this. Can you help?
