Heather with British Empire Medal

Luke Fitch

This was painted to commemorate Heather McIntosh being awarded the British Empire Medal. Presented to her in 2015, this medal recognised her 50 years of service to the local community as a Cub leader. As well as being a testimony to her accomplishment I hope the painting also captures the warmth of her personality. I strongly believe in community spirit and the importance of selflessness – I painted this portrait of Heather because she embodies these often-overlooked values. Heather is an integral part of New Galloway and continues to run Cubs every week. 

Oil on canvas. 24" x 30".
