TALENTED artist Josie Russell, survivor of the brutal murder of her mother and sister, has her work displayed at a police headquarters.

North Wales chief constable Carl Foulkes commissioned her artwork, which he described as: “This stunning piece”, as part of the refurbishment of the reception area of force headquarters at Colwyn Bay. It is funded by the police and the crime commissioner.

Chief Constable Foulkes said: “Through her use of recycled fabrics, Josie has captured the beauty and diversity of north Wales, as well as creating a unique focal point for visitors to our headquarters.

“I’m delighted we can celebrate the talents of such a great local artist, this really does add the finishing touch to our recent upgrade work.”

It was in 1996 when Josie, then aged nine, was badly injured in the hammer attack in Kent which killed her mother and sister and shook the nation. In recent years she has made a name for herself as a leading artist in North Wales.
