Since Australia's military history is so short in comparison to other countries, sadly we don't have the mass interest to encourage many artists to paint military themes - those that do get very little support.
I have no hesitation recommending these contempory artists - they are filling a very important historical gap. If not for them, many great Australian military moments and heroes would go unsung to future generations.
