Why am I doing this?

Simple I love drawing, love football and I wanted to give something back to the people/place that gave a lot to me and my new family last May.

Why are all the proceeds going to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)?

Firstly, forgive me if the following sounds a bit X Factor sob story but here goes……….. last May we had serious difficulties during the birth of our daughter Tuesday, she was deprived of oxygen for several minutes during labour and an emergency Caesarean was needed to get her out as quickly as possible. We were told that there was a real chance of damage to the brain so she was put on a revolutionary cooling treatment being trialled at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

Tuesday responded well to the treatment and both her and mum were looked after for the next ten days by the great people on the maternity ward. I really believe that if it hadn’t been for the brilliant work of all the people in the NICU and the follow up care we have received over the last year Tuesday might not have turned out as well as she has today.

If you would like to buy one of my artworks remember that as well as purchasing an Elliott Quince original you will also be helping hundreds of babies just like Tuesday.

Tuesday on her cooling mat and Tuesday now
