Saint Vincent’s Nursing Home Artist-in-Residence
The Board of Directors at Saint Vincent’s Nursing Home recently welcomed Susan MacLeod in to the volunteer role of Artist-in-Residence.
As the Artist-in-Residence, Susan is focusing on how to visually show Saint Vincent’s as a compassionate, resident and family centred nursing home. Her series of sketches ‘Humans of Saint Vincent’s’ will aim to demonstrate how residents are human beings with a range of needs, wants, personalities and emotions, and to demonstrate how staff compassionately interact with residents daily despite the obstacles of budget and time constraints.
Susan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University. She sits on the Community Relations Committee at SVNH and is interested in promoting the good reputation of SVNH. Susan is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Nonfiction from the University of King’s College. She is working towards creating a graphic novel describing the human side of system care in nursing homes.
