"For a period during the early 1990's I was living close to the Townsville foreshore. As I was rearing small children and had very little time, I chose to work on a series of small plates related to walks along the Strand and nearby places. All of the plates were drawn from life and reflect my love of this part of Townsville." - Ron McBurnie
