Lewis John Knox

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.
