Artist's statement

Nobby is my eighty seven-year-old father- in-law. He moved to Australia from England in 1959. His career as a doctor includes stints as medical superintendent at multiple hospitals around Australia. He has a passion for the Australian bush and enjoys daily walks in the nearby hills and reserves. I have enjoyed his vivid and colourful life stories when walking with him. My time with Nobby has taught me to keep the body and mind active for as long as possible, and listen and learn from those who are looking back.
