Andrew Ballard lives in Adelaide. He was a Petty Officer Medical in the Royal Australian Navy for 11 years, following which he worked for medical companies selling devices and instruments, then as a support worker in mental health, first aid and as an aged care trainer.
Diagnosed with systemic mastocytosis, he took early retirement during 2020 when activities were curtailed, he turned to writing and digital art. In quick succession his poetry has been published in the US in the inaugural edition of the New Jersey Mignolo Arts Group’s journal, the New York poetry journal ‘Open Skies’, The Beckindale Poetry Journal and InDaily, Poets Corner.
Andrew’s abstract digital art sometimes combined with photo manipulation has exploded with colour over the last year. From digital doodling, brightly coloured abstracts have been created. Art and writing have been very therapeutic outlets for both his physical and mental health. “For years Andrew’s creativity was locked away but was not quite a life sentence, it walks freely today.”
