Mark Rusic – graduate Mechanical Engineer, self-published author, painter, husband, father of  three (including twins) and Pastor of The Hope Church.

A proud Melburnian, his first publication, “Iconic Melbourne”, first left the printer’s galley in 2014. Its history included a display at the Melbourne Library, book signing at Dymocks Camberwell and copies being presented to G20 leaders.

His second publication in 2017 was “Iconic Animals of Australia”.

The books support a theme developed by Mark of healing, learning and blossoming which the drawings and paintings enhance. Adoption of positive attitudes to work through conflict and disappointment and recognising latent skills was a key part of that journey.

A vote of thanks was made by Chris who presented a Certificate of Appreciation, our Rotary in Motion publication (and a Rotary pen).
