In 1986 The Association Européenne des Illustrateurs Médicaux et Scientifiques (AEIMS) was founded in Strasbourg. Its aims were to bring together artists, illustrators and sculptors working in medical education and the life sciences.
AEIMS meets somewhere in Europe each year, usually linking the conference with one of the European training institutes.
The meeting is always great fun and increasingly worthwhile as the years pass.
As a long term member of AEIMS, the medical artwork work done by Ray Evans, can be viewed in context with other medical and scientific artists.
