About artist-author Gauvin

'In essence, I'm painting the Story of my 'tribe' - the Europeans who came to Australia and built a nation. Being born at Winton in Western Queensland, centre stage of the 1890s uprising known as the Australian 'secret' civil war, has influenced the direction of my interest in the Story of Australia. All my work, in images and in writing, is based on that eventful  period.'
