Hamish's Exhibition

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

When I hear others grumble about their health I tell them about my cousin Hamish; He's bedridden,

deaf, was born with cerebral palsy, and a tetraplegic after fate crippled him with a failed spinal

operation. He's in 24hour care at Kandahar Home, Masterton.

Once he was an able painter and in October 2020, a retrospective of “ A life in Painting” was held

at King Street Art Works, Masterton, to celebrate a life of achievement. Hamish Kummer.
