Artist's Description

This is the first in a series of portraits I am taking for my ‘Old Timers’ series It brings to light those who have dedicated decades to their chosen occupation, craft or trade, some by choice others through need. A trait which is rapidly diminishing in todays society where people are in constant flux between jobs, careers and hobbies.

This is a salute to the Old Timers!

This is Boris, a master craftsman who learnt the art of watchmaking and repairs through his father before him in Switzerland. Since emigrating to Australia mid last century he worked for others until finally establishing himself in his own premises where he has been since.

An updated Bio to come soon… I hope you enjoy!
