Illustrating poetry for Jaya & Ellie





HOPE-book cover


Working with an old friend to illustrate a book of his poetry.

Donations will help Jaya create a legacy to support his daughter Ellie and charities. The book is ready -if you want to support, then share the idea and donate via and receive a copy of the book.

Excerpt from the introduction:
…a way to express the experiences of my illness and its treatment especially as a doctor and now a patient.  I also intend, with this book to raise some funds for Bloodwise and the Anthony Nolan Trust whilst also raising awareness to encourage people, particularly of ethnic minorities, to put themselves on the bone marrow register…


We showed some of the poems & images at a Brighton Artists Open House festival during May 2017.

Examples of the artwork carousel below.

This series of artworks also explores understanding, compassion, unity, multiplicity and dualities.

Sales of the artwork help docsurfdogs complete more projects. 

If you are interested in the artwork, please only purchase after donating to Jaya’s cause
