ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Don Meyer, originally introduced to drawing through encouragement from Maxine Donald during his membership with the Gawler Art Society, then embarked on a journey of artistic exploration.

 

While his artistic repertoire predominantly features charcoal and pastel works, Don has recently ventured into acrylic abstracts, evident in the new 'Abstracts' page on his website, and has developed an interest in mixed media and collage techniques.

Don's artistic journey reached a milestone with a successful solo exhibition in Gawler, South Australia, a testament to his growth and talent, with several pieces finding new homes. 

Beyond the realm of creativity, Don passionately advocates for the profound sociological benefits that art offers throughout one's life. Despite occasional challenges, he finds endless joy and fulfilment in artistic expression, likening it to a perennial source of cheer available to all.
