“This idea to paint a blue heart was inspired by 11 year girl called Tamara McAuley from Suffolk who started a campaign to show the NHS how proud we are by displaying blue hearts in windows.

When I saw this I knew I had to paint a blue heart too!” said London-based Australian artist and serial painter of hearts Jimmy C
