Artist Name

A group of wonderful Neo-natal Intensive Care nurses at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto commissioned me to do a portrait of a family, who after receiving superlative care at St. Mike's for their premature infant, gave back by creating a fundraising event called Malachy's Soiree which raised more than $450K in its first year for the NICU at St. Michael's Hospital. The framed painting was presented at the fundraiser.  Watercolour portrait, 14 x 20 inches,
