Kowhai, by Simon Randell Watercolour, framed.
A celebration of the kowhai-not by way of the chartreuse yellow of its temporary flower but by three examples of its evergreen leaf, often overlooked but immediately recognisable. Simon works as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse, and has worked in Wellington Hospital’s NICU for almost six years.
In Simon's words: "I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the challenges and hurdles faced by newborn babies who stay with us in the neonatal ward, and have found helping to support their journey, as well as that of their families, a really rewarding experience. Because of this I have a great appreciation of the work done by The Neonatal Trust to help support parents and families of NICU infants. The role the Trust has is integral to how the neonatal unit works.
Tiny Art is an excellent way for me to use my creativity to give back to The Neonatal Trust and the place I work. In a broader way it’s a really positive way for artists and creators to get involved in giving support to those experiencing the trials and stresses that go hand-in-hand with having their baby, grandchild, brother, sister, niece or nephew staying in hospital after they’re born.”
Every year in New Zealand, more than 5000 babies are born premature. That’s one every 90 minutes. The Neonatal Trust helps to support the families of premature and also sick full-term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home and onwards. We focus on supporting parents during this often stressful time with support that is delivered in a number of ways.
