I have never thought of myself as an artist! I have had artistic impulses in my life but I have not been able, until now, to do anything seriously! I have always been drawn to shapes and colour however the rapid development of technology, techniques apps like Prisma has enabled me to use my interpretation to full effect. Evolving Art is the result! I hope you enjoy them as much I did creating them! As a Buddhist I see the world around me in a wide range of conditions which we call the Ten Worlds. So it was quite natural for me to create a series of ideas with Prisma around the photos of a Rudbekia that expressed my interpretation of these basic sates of life - Hell, Hunger, Animality, Anger, Tranquillity, Rapture, Learning, Absorption, Boddhisattva and Buddahood. But what do you see?

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
I want to use the art I create to raise awareness of dementia. I will use the feedback from my exhibition to look at how I can do this more effectively.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Time constraints may be an issue.
Raising awareness of dementia
I will use my exhibition to raise awareness of dementia and how it affects people. I will collect feedback from visitors to see how I can better raise awareness of the condition.
Dementia Friendly Environments
I will look at using environments that can be adapted to be more dementia friendly to display my artwork in. I will use feedback from visitors to see how these environments can become even more dementia friendly.
Supporting Alzheimer's Society
I will support the work of Alzheimer's Society by donating 15% of each sale to the charity.
