"I haven’t painted for 22 years. I lost my inspiration while in a very difficult relationship and I had a lot of illness. I met Amanda (Wintringham Recreation Officer) and she saw my old artwork that I had found, I thought it had been thrown away many years ago.
She inspired me to start painting again so this work I have submitted is a new beginning."
"I have lived in the Castlemaine and Maldon area most of my life. I found Wintringham through My Aged Care, I met an Assessment Officer and I was given a pamphlet and I chose Wintringham - I had heard they are very good."
