Young Carers

Jo from the Young Carers asked me whether I could create 4 pop-up pictures of young people with different caring responsibilities for their stand in the County Council tent at the Norfolk Show. I could make them however I wanted - photographs, clipart, paintings. The idea is young people visiting the stand will throw counters into a dish in front of the picture that best represents their situation. I decided to commission international artist Eloise O'Hare to work with me on the project and spent several days in her garden enjoying masterclass art lessons, helping her paint in blocks of colour and using the jigsaw and sanding. Here's a pic of a young carer responsible for managing her dad's medication. She looks sweet, strong & very capable. Perfect.
