Creating a loose Brighton&Hove Artist-Medic group, to foster the scenius principle.
Initially wondering how we can combine interests in Health & Wellbeing, education, Art, Dermatology and FABRICA gallery.
Note this interesting research with Professor Christopher Griffiths.
Further images can be seen on Flickr.

Feeling the pulse
Taking project “Hope” and allowing the poem-painting combinations, to evolve into pulsating land- & sound-scapes, that move the heart.
A large installation, diving into and through the imagery of these worlds, pulsing to the sounds.
Taking “Feeling the pulse” further, to move the feet, into smaller spaces.
Early phase sketching, scratching and sampling Jaya’s voice to create beats…
A special interest in dermatology.
Progressing through the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology (organised by the Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research in the Blizard Institute, and the Department of Dermatology Barts Health, Queen Mary University, London).
Noticing an endless variety of textures.
Combining art and dermatology to enhance clinical skills (I’m not alone in this belief).
Not exactly sure where this is going, just letting it get under the…
Caring, feeling, curiosity,
Listening, reflecting, communicating.
Invaluable clinical skills

How to combine interests in helping people, health and art.
A way to promote health and improve the local environment, document the local scene, help fundraise for patients and the community, promote creative community activities & artists and tell stories. We would also like to interactively understand the effect visual art has in wellbeing with some research (Connect, Learn, Give).
A way to help remember things I’m reading, dipping into & learning. Now moving into sound, I will also include audiobooks I am listening to.
With a co-located medical centre and library, I’m happy to promote reading, listening, learning & books (Notice, Learn, Give – see instagram gallery in the footer below and here #deBooklog).
HOPE – Illustrating poetry for Jaya & Ellie
Work with an old friend to illustrate a book of his poetry.
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…”
