BAFTA and Emmy nominated BBC producer, Dr Paul Stewart, has unveiled an underwater-themed artwork created by Sunrise of Chorleywod residents.
Dr Stewart, who was also a camera man on Sir David Attenborough’s acclaimed Planet Earth series, unveiled the Hearts of the Ocean, 3D paper mache creation during an official ceremony.
The work, which features sea turtles, fish and seaweed, was created after maintenance manager, Patrick Maher, came up with the idea for an art piece as part of a creative project.
Sixty residents from the Assisted Living and Memory Care Neighbourhood areas of the home took part in the project that took two months to complete.
Patrick said: “We are so proud of all residents for producing an incredible piece of artwork. They poured their hearts into this project and you can really tell from the fantastic finished piece. I am overwhelmed by the talented and determined residents we have at Sunrise of Chorleywood, especially given the difficult 3D aspects involved in creating this masterpiece – a huge congratulations to everyone involved!”
Sunrise of Chorleywood resident, Mary, who took part in the project, said: “The finished piece is comforting and relaxing to look at, especially seeing the turtles swimming. I thoroughly enjoyed being involved and seeing the finished piece.”
