'Magic Happens' is in some senses a history of the development of the Painting with Parkinsons program, its spread internationally and the challenges and successes experienced by everyone involved.
Artist Nancy Tingey OAM dedicates this book to her husband Robert John Tingey, diagnosed with Parkinsons at the age of 46 in 1987 and died aged 77 on 17 November 2017. It was Bob who first became involved with the Parkinson's Disease Society of the ACT, but it was in 1993 that Nancy decided to start an art group called Painting with Parkinson's. Small grant funding helped get the program off the ground and in 1995 Nancy was awarded a Churchill Trust Fellowship to help her gain the experience and training she quickly realised she needed to deal with the complex issues that arose in her classes.
