The artwork was commissioned to commemorate and celebrate the life of the paediatrician Dr. Emma Chambers. Two side rooms in the Children’s Ward at Dorset County Hospital are filled with colourful and uplifting panels, depicting Australian landscapes, wildlife and aboriginal designs with many in the form of postcards and postage stamps. The paintings, by Poole artist Antonia Phillips, were inspired by Emma’s time at Cairns Base Hospital in Queensland, Australia, and Dorset County Hospital as Senior House Officer.
