The Burnt Bridge Mission Exhibition
DOB: 15 July 1947
I have been interested in painting since I was a small boy with cerebral palsy and polio.
When I reached adulthood I worked with Macleay Options, a service provider for people with disabilities.
I attend a disability group in Kempsey known as KOGS. As part of our weekly program I attend a living skills workshop with Macleay Options where we paint on a more serious level telling our stories through our art works.
