Talented Resident adds a splash of colour to Hatfield care homeA very talented Resident has been sharing her incredible artwork with her fellow Residents and Colleagues at HC-One’s St Christopher’s care home in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

Molly Dollimore is a brilliant painter and many of her beautiful landscapes are displayed around St Christopher’s for everybody to enjoy. Now she is sharing her incredible story with Residents and Colleagues.

Molly has lived at the home for over six years after suffering an unfortunate stroke. When she arrived, she was unable to talk and had limited movement but has since made a remarkable recovery.

She told Colleagues that being able to paint and draw was the one passion in her life that she wanted to be able to continue. She spoke about how she believed her art saved her life.

Molly said: “It’s lovely to think about all my happy memories and share my story and my paintings.”

She tells Colleagues that she got her talent from her father who would often draw pictures for her and her three brothers to enjoy. When she was younger she went to a school in the area where her art teacher encouraged her work and said she should monetise her talent, however Molly didn’t believe that her paintings were good enough to sell.

Painting is a hobby that Molly has continued to nurture throughout her life and she spent many hours working on different crafts and projects while raising her son.

She continues to regularly paint at St Christopher’s where she enjoys many other hobbies as well, including sewing, crochet and making cards and decorations for festive occasions.
