Denis is a primary producer who has lived in Rainbow or its surrounds, all of his life. He currently works as a gardener at Rainbow P-12 College. He has always enjoyed “tinkering”(like his father Clarrie) in his work shop and prefers to work with recycled scrap metal materials. He has recently been making sea creatures using tynes, chains, bolts and horse shoes. He made a giant pencil out of a wooden log to go into the school garden. After seeing this, Belinda suggested he make smaller pencils using cricket wickets/stumps and display them on a bat for Rainbow Bats for Will.
