Scott ‘Sauce’ Towney
How long have you lived in the Parkes shire and what do you like about living here?
I was born in Peak Hill and lived here all my life. You get to know everyone, it’s friendly, a typical country environment. There’s also lot of family around, and that’s what makes a place special, family and friendly people.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work?
I’m a working artist; I get a lot of commissioned jobs. Firstly, it’s a passion, and the money comes later. They say that if you work doing something you love, you never work a day in your life. I just love it, it’s a part of me.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends?
I like to sit back, have a barbeque, or take the grandkids to the river. I really like to have the grandkids around, they’re a bit hectic but they seem to relax me.
What are you really good at?
I’m good at art, obviously, but I also love music. I would have to say singing, playing a bit of guitar – that’s another passion of mine. I like to play Country and Western, and Blues styles.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Invisibility – you can stay out of a lot of mischief that way. And if you do get in trouble you can just disappear real quick.
What is your pet hate?
Loud people in small areas, that can be irritating. That’s where the river comes in handy.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
It would have to be a working holiday. I did a couple of trips to the Philippines – as part of a cross-cultural artists program. It was an eye-opening experience, to learn other cultures and see the way they lived. It was work, but we all had a really good time and made lifelong friends.
