Beaconsfield residents Rosie Barter, Kevin Gillam and Tineke Van Der Eeken, as well as Fremantle’s Veronica Lake and Hilton’s Liana Joy Christensen, will also have their poetry on display as part of the Creative Connections exhibition.

Ms Barter said there were some challenges involved, but that she enjoyed the process.

‘It was difficult working from online screen images because I wanted to see the real thing: its scale, texture, detail, saturation of colour,’ she said.

‘Each of the three works I responded to were from different artists and the works were therefore totally different in subject, style and execution, so I hope my poems reflect this.

‘This event is a spotlight on the artists’ lives, and I hope as many able-bodied and disabled people as possible will make their way to the Perth Town Hall to view this extraordinary exhibition.’

Creative Connections is at the Perth Town Hall foyer from August 30 to September 11.
