I have been a resident of Bannockburn 1986, first moving on to a small farm and then downsizing to a half acre in town proper where we have resided for the last 20 years. (I almost qualify as local).
Denis is a passionate painter who took up the brush when he retired in 1994. He had always wanted to paint and since 2001 he has managed the Bannockburn Arts Group which he loves because it gives him a great social outlet and also allows him to indulge in his very favourite thing - painting!

My name is Charlie Caruana and I live at Teesdale. I have been painting for about 11 years. I started to paint after I retired. My choice of medium is oil and also acrylic. I like to paint landscapes, seascapes and am always looking for different ideas. I also like gardening and woodwork and I find the three hobbies relaxing.
