Tell us your story

W. Alan Devereux was my grandfather who died in England in the early 70’s. I remember him as a kindly old man, not always brilliant with loud children in his last years. His studio had that distinctive smell of oil paint, linseed and turps, and his bookshelf an eclectic mix of spiritual, artistic , travel and sci-fi ! We don’t know too much about his times in Australia, though more keeps arising as Australian academics and historians shed more light. His daughter, my Mother is his only remaining living child.
