Manuel Petavrakis is a medical practitioner, hence “Dr. Manny”; an Australian of Greek descent and a father of three. With his wife Meg McGregor they run an Art shop and business. Dr Manny says 'One perk is that I get to learn about (and experiment with) a wide range of art materials. We offer free Art Demonstrations and enjoy close links with many art educators, so I also get to benefit by osmosis'.
