The display of art work for June is by two local artists, Marilyn and Peter Cook.

Marilyn was born in England and lived in South Africa before immigrating to Australia. She has always enjoyed art, and has completed a number of courses through TAFE, and has a B.A Fine Art at Griffith University.

Peter is a retired engineer who lost the use of his right hand as a result of a stroke. He has mastered the skill of using his left hand and enjoys using pen and wash as his creative medium.
