An artist trained in St Albans has donated his work to a hospital ward after treatment.

Albany Wiseman has given three limited edition lithographs to Luton and Dunstable University Hospital after staff in St Mary’s Medical Block expressed an interest.

The framed pieces will hang in the entrance to ward 19, where Albany received care.

One of them is of a posing ballet dancer and another is a landscape featuring a cottage in the countryside.

Drawing and painting for more than 30 years, Albany learned his craft at art college in St Albans but now lives in Leagrave.

He has been exhibited at the Tate Britain and the British Council.

A man of many talents, Albany is also about to publish a children’s book called Captain Coram Champion for Children My Story, which will be available in schools across London.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
