Artist donates paintings in thanks

Christian WulffA series of paintings has been unveiled at the Dorset Cancer Centre to brighten up the patient waiting area.

Local professional artist and former Poole Hospital doctor, Christian Wulff, donated the works as thanks for the care he received earlier this year.

Christian underwent a course of radiotherapy earlier this year and wanted to give back to the hospital after the positive experience he had. The four pieces created have a poster style finish and depict Canadian geese, French cockerels, flowers and herrings.

The artwork was unveiled on 15 August with a cream tea celebration of the work attended by Debbie Fleming, chief executive, and Angela Schofield, chairman, as well as Christian Wulff and hospital staff.

Christian said: “I was so impressed with the quality of care delivered to patients, I almost liked coming to Poole Hospital for my treatment.”Christian Wulff

“Now my treatment has finished I want to give back to them and felt four pieces of art to brighten other patients time at the cancer centre was the perfect way to do so.”

“Art can be very therapeutic for patients during an understandably stressful time” explained Karen Bew, head of therapy radiography.

“We are very fortunate to have these beautiful pieces donated by Christian and we’re sure our patients will enjoy them.

Christian was introduced to art at an early age and started painting when he lived in the Middle East. His work has been exhibited at numerous locations including the House of Commons and the Multiform Design Center, Copenhagen. Christian worked as a clinical neurophysiologist at Poole Hospital until 2007. 

The Dorset Cancer Centre is the major specialist cancer treatment centre for adults in the county. The centre provides a wide range of treatments including radiotherapy and chemotherapy for both common and rare cancers.
