A rare photograph of DJW in his natural habitat🐒🌿... now being dutifully overlooked by a 5m x 1.4m panel commissioned in 1988 (one of 4) for Roma Street Travelodge celebrating the Queensland outback.
This panel of the artwork slowly made its way home, most recently being gifted back to Donald by fellow artist, Kel Nielsen after selling his property. It is now proudly hung from the mezzanine in Don’s new studio like it was painted to fit! Fancy that! ✌🏼❤️🎨 ... See MoreSee Less

Happy birthday Amy! It was a pleasure to create this keepsake for you 💓What an awesome gift idea!
Amy was blown away with this one, I was struggling for a gift idea (I like to be sneaky and innovative) but a quick chat with Donald James Waters OAM sorted that out instantly.
The amazing man created a canvas with Amy as the feature for her 40th birthday celebrations. Then all our beautiful friends personalised it with messages and love.
I am so happy that Don created this for us, but no where near as happy as Amy is right now.
Thank you to all our wonderful friends who came and celebrated with us last night you made the day amazing and we couldn’t be happier to have spent our day with such an amazing bunch of friends we love each and everyone of you thank you for everything you do to make all of our days happy.￼ ...

I have always considered myself fortunate to live out my dream as a professional artist; but to also have the tools to MANAGE MY MENTAL HEALTH USING THE ARTS.

Thoroughly enjoying all the commissioned artworks I’ve been involved with recently. It’s such an honour to create artworks in commemoration/celebration of significant events; capturing memories, locations and personalities to be proudly displayed and passed down through the family for years to come.
Here’s one I’m putting the finishing touches on today... I hope they love it as much as I loved creating it ✌🏼❤️🎨 ... See MoreSee Less
