This article addresses the challenge of excavating the evidence from our lived experience with arts and health, describing the impact of direct personal experience with art making on health, and of an inter-subjective aesthetic experience. This material, derived from a studio practice of painting that explored the experience of multiple sclerosis (MS), was presented as a case story at the Evidence in a Different Form Conference in 2013, and the kinds of evidence noted by the group are reported.
