In response to the Covid-19 pandemic I have put out a call on my Instagram and Facebook accounts to offer a free portrait to the 1st front line worker to contact me. In conjunction with The Line Gallery in Linlithgow we have created a group project as a thank you from Scottish Artists to front line workers.
