“Manchester is my home town and for me there is no place like it,” says Lisa. “The saying ‘home is where the heart is’ rings true for me.”
Lisa felt shock and disbelief following the attack, which she describes as ‘too close to home’.
“Like every person, not just in Manchester but on a global level, I was just devastated,” she says.
“I was relieved no one among my family or friends was hurt, but the reality is, they could have been. I was equally as saddened by the number of people who were killed or sustained life-changing injuries.
“I can’t even contemplate how much pain the families of all the young victims are still going through.
“Those are the reasons I have created my tribute. If the money raised goes towards helping a person with life-changing injuries, then I will rest easier.”
Five paintings have made it into Lisa’s Manchester tribute – Selfridges, St Ann’s Square, London Road, The Shambles, and Manchester bees.
The five paintings are available from her Etsy shop in various colours and sizes as stand alone prints, or framed and ready to hang. The proceeds from the two that make the most money will go to the Manchester Emergency Fund.
