Nicola Ravenscroft A graduate of Camberwell School of Art, she has owned and run a sculpture gallery and, as an art teacher, has nurtured many young people into celebrating their inherent creativity and thinking beyond the walls.
Nicola has recently been commissioned to create a memorial to honour the bravery of front-line NHS and care workers in the fight against Covid. Nic Careem, who proposed and directs the project, has set up a committee including MPs and Peers to oversee the project and raise funds. The project has the backing of Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock and members of the public are currently being asked to propose a fitting name for the memorial.
Nicola says she is ‘deeply honoured to be commissioned by the anti-poverty campaigner/visionary Nic Careem, parliamentarians Dean Russell MP and Lord Rami Ranger, co-chairs of The NHS & Social Care Memorial Committee to create a new bronze sculpture in gratitude to our precious NHS, and in enduring memory of those who, on the COVID front line, “gave their love for those in life: their sleep is not in vain”.’
