Whatever happened to Ian Lewis?

Those who have our books The Golden Era of Fiat Railcars in NZ and The Railways of NZ: A journey through history (first edition) may have wondered what happened to Ian Lewis, the artist who painted the cover illustrations.

After living in New Zealand for 27 years, he returned to his homeland of Australia in 1994 and went to the outback mining town of Broken Hill, where he continued painting. He now exhibits with partner artist Wendy Martin at the Bush 'n' Beyond Gallery at 4 Argent Street, Broken Hill.

The latest issue of the Broken Hill tourist magazine features one of Ian's paintings.
