Trustee pro­file

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

This week Trustee Paul An­der­sen talks about his in­volve­ment with the trust, which is try­ing to set up an art re­cy­cling hub at the race­course in Fox­ton.

“I moved to Fox­ton Beach in 2003. In 2004 Sh­eryl Rogers and I started the Fox­ton Arts Club, which op­er­ated for 12 years un­til the build­ing was de­mol­ished to make room for the Te Awa­hou Nieuwe St­room. Dur­ing the first five years I was the pres­i­dent of the Fox­ton Art Club.

For the last 12 years I have been in­volved in build­ing stage sets for the Fox­ton Lit­tle The­atre.

I got in­volved with the Green­heart Hub Trust be­cause I liked their aims and ob­jec­tives, and up­cy­cled art is my forte. A ma­jor­ity of my art works have evolved from up­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. Some ex­am­ples of my work can be viewed at the SEA Gal­ley Fox­ton Beach.

My he­roes are Sal­vador Dali and Keith Richards.
