May 2009: Exhibiting artist Sam Lomas

"I have been working as a therapy assistant with the Art Therapy team for 2 years. As a practising artist, I have encouraged our clients to express themselves using strong colours and imagery. By painting alongside clients and exhibiting paintings with them at this exhibition, I hope that it celebrates all of us as equals. We are all artists and this exhibition will go some way to reduce the stigma and prejudice associated with epilepsy, learning disabilities and associated mental health issues."
