Lyndoch proud of our Warrnibald Entrants

  • 0

We have some very talented people here at Lyndoch, the proof of which is on public display from now until Sunday 6th September 2020 at the Warrnambool Art Gallery in the 2020 Warrnibald Prize.

Jane Moloney

Jane Moloney is a Personal Care Worker at Lyndoch and has been an entrant in the portrait competition for a number of years, featuring a number of the characters and personalities that have lived and worked at Lyndoch, including the late Lindsay Brodie (which placed 2nd in the Archibool Peoples Choice Award in 2017) and the late Audrey Prider.
This year Jane has created a portrait of Sandy Carmody, the Clinical Lead for Riverside Hostel. Jane said she chose Sandy as her subject this year because:
Sandy has worked in a caring role at Lyndoch Living for twenty-eight years, having become a nurse eighteen years ago and stepping into the role of Clinical Leader in Riverside Hostel eight years ago. I have chosen Sandy as I admire her commitment to the residents and staff in Riverside.
Sandy is always approachable for us all. She has a huge responsibility within her role. Now in the environment of Covid 19 restrictions, there is much reassurance for the residents and their well-being. When I asked Sandy what her love of the job is, she replied: ‘It’s the residents. It’s challenging but so rewarding.’
