St Oswalds Hospice - Continuing Bonds 


Leanne always seeks to make work which has a positive impact. Continuing Bonds is a project in collaboration with renowned North East hospice, St Oswalds. Leanne worked closely with 12 families who have had loved ones die at the hospice and family members who access their services. She painted portraits of the 12 individuals with an aim of helping the families with the continuing bonds of their loved ones. The whole process has been documented on film. The work culminates in an exhibition during dying matters week 2024 at the Civic Centre Newcastle, the documentary film is shown alongside, this can also be viewed here.  


Here is what the St Oswalds team have to say…
