Hospital Monkey Bananas Mural
Hospital Monkey Mural

The hospital wanted to make a cubicle in the Majors ward and the Minors ward more child friendly, and so approached me for ideas on a hand painted mural for each room. The mural in the minors ward had to run around the whole room and provide something interesting for the children to look at. I designed a Monkey mural for this cubicle and then painted bananas hidden in the vines so that when the children were being treated the nurses had something they could distract the children with, by asking them to see if they could spot all the hidden bananas within the mural painting.

"I am writing this email to express my sincere gratitude for the work you have done recently in the Emergency Department. From initial contact you were helpful with the design and your flexibility was especially accommodating so we could get the artwork completed with as little disruption as possible in order for the ED to continue seeing patients.


The finished product not only brightens up the department but is welcomed by the younger generation and makes what could be a scary frightening place more friendly and welcoming. The hidden bananas within the monkey mural are an added delight and acts as a wonderful distraction for the children when they are having minor procedures. Hopefully we will work with you again in the future when more funds are raised."
