My sitter for this piece is an artist and professional artists' model, whose company and conversation I have enjoyed both at the portrait classes I teach and at one-to-one sittings. Begun as a straight-forward portrait over a number of sittings, the piece acquired a poignancy that developed as I continued to work over a period of months from photographs. It was during the first lockdown that I settled on the title 'Woman Holding On'.

Tara is a Support Care Night Nurse for the NHS on a C19 ward. Her sister took up my offer to make a portrait of an NHS front-liner for #portraitsfornhsheroes. Among the photos she provided for reference was a small, low resolution, close-up taken by a colleague during a hastily snatched break. Despite the paucity of three-dimensional information this snap provided, the narrative power of the image was compelling: I had no choice but to take on the challenge. Tara has been working selflessly on the frontline throughout the pandemic. It was a privilege to be able to celebrate her courage and sacrifice in this way. My thanks go to Tom Croft for the #portraitsfornhsheroes initiative and to Tara’s sister for facilitating the making of this sculpture.
