As a member of the Bentmoor community Men's Shed in Moorabbin, I undertook this project to document men who are participants of Men’s Sheds around Victoria, and whilst I was not able to include anywhere near everybody or indeed every Men’s Shed, I have been able to collect a representative sample of men who are involved in this association.

The project involved me producing paintings, etchings and photos of men who attend a Men’s Shed on a regular basis and who volunteered to participate in this project. The portraits of the participants will be displayed in an exhibition at the Bentmoor Community Men's Shed - 185 Wickham Road Moorabbin, on July 26 and 27th. 
I have also produced six larger scale oil on canvas works and 6 etchings, that show some of the participants at work in the Men’s Sheds and some of the sheds themselves.

This project involved the production of a book. This book contains all
the images I created as well as the personal stories of the participants. The  book launch will be part of the bi-annual national conference of AMSA in Ballarat, October 27-29, 2013. The book is available for purchase NOW.
This project has the support of:
