Thank you to the artist Heather Lucchesi for very generously gifting this artwork to the Art in Healthcare Collection.



''My degree in textile design brings an appreciation of texture and colour along with practical construction and problem-solving, resulting in rich, sensory mixed media work. This energy shows both in my own artwork and when collaborating with and, and enabling, others'' (Heather Lucchesi).

After working as the art specialist teacher in St.Crispin's Special School for nine years, Heather set up Light Bulb Arts, a social enterprise company dedicated to exploring what is possible when artists and those with support needs and health issues, learn and create together. Heather has also been involved with providing art workshops for Art in Healthcare's Outreach Programme.
