A Ukrainian refugee has decorated the windows of a Welwyn women’s fashion boutique with hand-drawn artwork.

SuSu owner Amy Thomson and husband Robert host a Ukrainian refugee and through this are involved in the Welwyn Garden City Facebook group. ‘Supporting sponsors and hosts of Ukrainian guests’.

Amy saw a post by Hanna Kosh looking for customers for her beautiful hand drawn window art and contacted her.

Hanna has now decorated SuSu’s shop windows with fantastic meadow flowers, butterflies and bees using specialist white pens.

Hanna said: “It’s hard to believe that it was only four months ago that I left Kiev with my three daughters and what few belongings we could fit in our Mini Cooper for a trip across Europe that ended in Welwyn.

“In Kiev I worked as a lawyer, but I always did art and design on the side and I dreamed of being able to make a career out of it.

“Now here in the UK, I have the opportunity to do just that.

“I am very happy and grateful to Amy for the opportunity to show my work and to the people of Welwyn and Hertfordshire for helping me and my family to settle.”

Social media posts of storefront photos have gained a lot of attention.

SuSu customers and residents and visitors to Welwyn enjoy this original and playful display of glass art, which SuSu says they will keep in the window throughout the summer.
