A KINGSWOOD artist is hoping to bring a splash of colour to the homes of some of the town’s deserving frontline NHS workers.

Lee Summerfield, of Castle Green, is a UX designer at AJ Bell during the day and after spending long hours working from home during the coronavirus outbreak he is taking some time out each evening to create new miniature paintings or forget-me-nots, which he is now planning to give away.

The 45-year-old has had his artwork exhibited across the north west over the past few years and even took part in an art battle in Warrington’s Parr Hall during the Museum Under The Moon event in October.

Lee is hoping his latest project, where people can nominate friends and family members who they think should receive one of his paintings, will bring a smile to the faces of some of the hardest working people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Lee said: “In the past, I’ve done some large paintings of banks of wild flowers and then used smaller canvases to create a close up of individual flowers. “These have proved really popular so I thought I’d paint some during lockdown and give them away to our frontline NHS workers.

“I chose forget-me-nots as this is a time that none of us will forget but the flowers are vibrant and colourful and will hopefully brighten people’s day.”
