THE way Tom Spence looks at the world is what inspires his artworks.
In his latest exhibition, Mr Spence explored the relationship between colour, sound and the corresponding chakra in the human body.
Mr Spence said it was being diagnosed with motor neuron disease that inspired Project ONE.
"I had the idea to do a series of paintings in colour relating to chakras and people approached me saying they would help," he said.
"Finally I had enough volunteers and we started in April and finished just before it was hung.
"There were 26 people that helped contribute to my exhibition."
Mr Spence said art was something he had always had a passion for.
"I used to draw in the dirt with my finger when I was a boy," he said.
"I am going to keep working and hope to produce one piece at a time."
You can see Tom Spence's work, and that of Dorothy Haig, Sue Jurd, Margaret Oban Dowe and Maggie Brockie, at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery.
