Roachie - The Gallipoli Adventurer

I'm an Australian living near the Gallipoli battlefield. I have wandered every inch of the ANZAC area and know every gully, valley, ridge, tunnel and trench. Having worked in the travel industry since 1988 and having moved to Turkey in 1996 I have a love of all things old, history, architecture and cultures. I have combined all my passions, travel, art, food, wine and exploration into one entity...... The Gallipoli Artist. #GallipoliArt @GallipoliArt I hope to bring school groups, clubs and individuals here to share and appreciate the stunning scenery, the overgrown dugouts and trenches, the people. It's hard to imagine that in this dramatic, beautiful windswept place that once over a millions soldiers faced off at each other. These days peace has come to Gallipoli, you can wander and paint the scenery and have nothing but the breeze as your companion. Come and see, feel and take home a memory of things not easily forgotten. The Gallipoli area has been photographed, sketched and painted from long before the First World War to this day. Sadly, there are very few modern day reminders in ink, paint and pencil. In this the 100th year since the landing it's time to commit to memory, paper, cloth and easel artwork that will live well into the next 100 years. Come and join me....
