A welcoming environment

Erin Burns from Onward Arts said,

“We are so lucky to have André’s beautiful, calming images to create a welcoming environment for staff and patients alike.

“The introduction of original artwork to the clinical environment has been shown to improve outcomes for patients. In addition, our hardworking staff feel better looked after when they get to work in more engaging spaces.”

Matt Sanderson, Senior MSK Physiotherapist is delighted with how the art has transformed the space he and his colleagues work in.

“It’s wonderful! We are all so excited for our workspace to be uplifted and improved with these beautiful pieces.”
