On Monday, a Utah artist announced her “thank you” to the frontline medical staff fighting COVID-19. This is a large painting she donated to Intermountain Healthcare.
Riverton artist Heather Olsen said that her painting is titled “We can do this together” because of meeting doctors and nurses and admiring them for the duration of the pandemic. Due to sacrifices made to save lives.
“You are a hero,” Olsen told medical staff at the unveiling of the Murray Intermountain Transformation Center on Monday. “Every day you are changing your life and making a difference. You are making the world a better place.”
Olsen said that the painting is a collage of 11 doctors and nurses in action. “All I can say is’thank you.'” “It’s huge for me, it’s almost curable. [It] These people are outside and doing everything they can to make me feel relieved. “
Prints of this painting will be distributed to hospitals and facilities in the Intermountain area. Health care workers will have access to personal prints.
When the pandemic began, Olsen was inspired by his sister nurse and started drawing pictures of medical staff about a year ago. Her first nurse showed a nurse wearing personal protective equipment, wearing gloves. (That painting is part of a coronavirus-inspired work by Utah artists curated by The Salt Lake Tribune in 2020.)

Olsen said that although she gave this character in that painting and gave others a normal face in subsequent paintings, Olsen said: “I have a few nurses who came up to me and said, ‘You did me.
Intermountain’s intensive care unit nurse Elizabeth Hyde received a painting by Olsen, and when Hyde said she was “exhausted physically and mentally”, the paintings were sent to her one’s house.
Hyde said: “When she appeared at my door, it made me feel excited and relieved. I am a good nurse and I can do this, and my daily work can benefit the community.”
