15 All my own work PETER TOWNSEND Peter Townsend c1940, just before leaving for Burma. Photo courtesy of Catherine Townsend. In 1994 Peter Townsend was a writer-in-residence at the Canberra School of Art. At the end of his stay, as was the custom, Peter wrote in David Williams’s School of Art Visitors Book – fifteen closely-written pages of memories, anecdotes and observations in an apparent stream-of-consciousness wherein he frequently castigates himself for writing too much. He called it ‘All my own work’, and here are a few extracts.
