Kind-hearted artist shows “compassion” to hospital staff
A FORMER patient and celebrated artist treated at a Suffolk hospital has given staff a painting to thank them for the “excellent care and treatment” she received.
Constance Stubbs, who lives in Pakenham, has donated one of her works, called Compassion, to the hospital to brighten the corridors for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff.
The gift from Ms Stubbs follows her treatment for chronic asthma and breast cancer.
“I have been a patient at the hospital many times, and wanted to do something nice for the hospital, its staff, visitors and other patients,” said Ms Stubbs, who began painting nearly 70 years ago aged just 14. “Compassion is a gift for the excellent care and treatment I have received at the hospital, and I hope it brings some enjoyment to other people using the building.
“I rather like producing colourful works with lots of activity within them. I also paint some landscapes and enjoy exploring the human condition through my artwork.”
