A YOUNG Ipswich artist can feel immensely proud today as her work is on show to hundreds of people at Ipswich Hospital.

Rochelle Williams, a year 11 student at Holywells High School, produced a piece of textile art for the hospital in the shape of a butterfly.

The artwork will be displayed in the children's area of the new day surgery department, The Raedwald Day Surgery Unit, which is in the new Garrett Anderson Centre.

Rochelle's art teacher, Kate Talmadge, said: "The formation of visual displays around the hospital provides patients with something different to view and enjoy.

“Holywells has focussed on the production of vibrant, innovative art work to make patients of all ages feel more positive about their stay in hospital.

“It is great to see Rochelle's work there. She has worked so hard and done so much on her own.
