Zoe meets her in­spi­ra­tion

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ZOE Can­field’s award-win­ning art­work for the An­zac Cen­te­nary art show has fi­nally “gone home”.

She at­tended the Legacy Lun­cheon in Syd­ney, where she was able to meet her in­spi­ra­tion, 96-year-old Sec­ond World War vet­eran Bill Whyte, and present him with the por­trait.

Ms Can­field was thank­ful for Cruise Whit­sun­days’ free tick­ets to Hamil­ton Is­land so she could board her flight to Syd­ney.

She de­scribed Mr Whyte as a “real gen­tle­man” and said he was ac­com­pa­nied by his grand­son Josh, who would be keep­ing the art­work.

PROUD MO­MENT: Zoe Can­field presents Bill Whyte her An­zac art piece of him at the Legacy Lun­cheon in Syd­ney.
