'Oriana'

Oil on canvas
41 x 51 cm

Oriana (aged 37) is working as recreational therapist in a care home for people
with dementia. Her job, quite ironically, resulted from completing a stint of community service, she’d been ordered to do after being accused of “taking advantage of vulnerable people”.
This charge was made by the children of a few elderly individuals. And a charge that Oriana still persistently defends.
However, the staff of the home, were impressed with the professional compassion Oriana exhibited during her community service and they wanted her to stay.
