Biography: Deborah Padfield is a visual artist specialising in lens based media and inter-disciplinary practice and research within Fine Art and Medicine. She has collaborated extensively with clinicians and patients exploring the value of images to clinician-patient interactions and the communication of pain. In 2001 her work with Dr Charles Pither at St Thomas Hospital, led to a touring exhibition, pilot study and book, Perceptions of Pain. Her recent collaboration with Professor Joanna Zakrzewska, and facial pain clinicians/patients from UCLH led to several exhibitions, symposia and the current Pain: speaking the threshold (PSTT) project at UCL. She lectures and exhibits nationally and internationally.
