'You Have My Heart' and 'Groovy Kind of Love' are the last in a series of works created to celebrate my time as an Intensive Care Nurse in a Cardiac Unit. I always admired the anatomy and physiology drawings in our books, works of art themselves despite their graphic/macabre nature. My aim was to explore the juxtaposition of the anatomy image being used to portray a sweet, loving message. The heart was chosen deliberately to contrast with how most people draw hearts or the heart is portrayed in common artworks or doodles.
