Hospital Sketch 2

Parker Hospital Sketches 2

About the Artwork

This is one of a series of occasional sketches based on my experiences working with the hospital chaplaincy. These drawings, made long after I have left the wards, are not portraits of specific patients but are a record of their pain and suffering, their courage and dignity and–sometimes–their surprising beauty.

Margaret Adams Parker has been a working artist for nearly forty years, and for the last three years has served with the hospital chaplaincy as a patient companion to the critically ill and dying. As a patient companion, she sits with patients and their families for however long they’d like.
