Welcome to the Art of Caring 2020. Today we introduce the work of 4 artists who have contributed work to this year's exhibition.... Helen Grundy, Daniele Bongiovanni, Jade Atkinson and Laura Atkinson. The Art of Caring is an annual inclusive international art exhibition celebrating Nurses, Midwives, Carers, and the NHS. Thank you to the School of Nursing at Kingston University for their support.

"Three years ago I was being treated for metatastic thyroid cancer, I will never forget the kindness and compassion of the nurses who helped me through the first few days after major surgery. I will always be grateful to them."
 I am a contemporary fine artist based in Birmingham, UK. I am an object maker, a creator of digital and paper collages and I also make coloured pencil drawings. I graduated from The Birmingham School of Fine Art in 2004 and since then have been exhibiting both nationally and internationally.  My practice is driven by my desire to work with unusual materials and to create works that are surreal, provocative and humourous. I am fascinated by the phenomenon of nostalgia and its bittersweet effect on our senses. I feel that each artwork I make is a souvenir from my life. I am currently exploring new directions with collage and trying to incorporate new materials, new processes and want to try and invent a new art form.
