PAINTING his thoughts helped Robert Grimmond-Thompson through his injury, and he wants others to follow suit.
Robert, a software engineer from Bletchley, has been using his unique art to help hospitals treat people with brain disorders and those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. After he suffered from a brain injury, Robert said that painting helped ease the pain he was suffering and nursed him back to health.
He said: “I had an accident in America and nothing the doctors were doing, through the medication and drugs, was easing my discomfort.
“I couldn’t describe how I felt, so I started drawing.
“It made me feel less stressed, eased the pain and I began to lose the numbness I was feeling.”
But Robert’s methods don’t just help patients, but also the doctors treating them.
He said: “I have been using my pictures to help not only patients, but doctors too.
“I have sent pictures out to a hospital in Ghana to help them there.
“I hope I can take it further afield and help people everywhere who are suffering from the same problems I did.”
