Hospital Mural project.

We were contacted by Nottingham University Hospital to help create some colorful murals to brighten up the walls of the neonatal emergency care ward. The ward sister had consulted with patient parents and staff and they had agreed they would love to have some images from the “Guess how much I love you” children’s books.

A consultation meeting was arranged and Melissa discussed all the options with ward sister Lorraine Collins at the hospital. Together they chose a handful of images and possible locations and sizes. Melissa advised it would be best to paint the murals off site onto a special poly canvas that can be pasted to walls and removed and relocated if required. The hard wearing, non shrinking and waterproof qualities of the canvas are ideal for this type of project where the murals are located in high traffic areas. Painting the canvas off site also means minimum disruption for the hospital.

Melissa took care of the copyright with the publisher who kindly agreed use of their illustrations for the murals.

The finished murals look beautiful and the hospital staff and patients commented  how they love the way they brighten the ward up.

If you are looking to brighten up a ward at your hospital please contact Melissa on 0772 2239379 to arrange a consultation.

Melissa will visit you at a suitable time and location to discuss all the options regarding your Hospital Mural project.
