Tim Smith of Penrith has always been good at drawing.

At 38 he is a talented artist who loves to draw houses.

Smith, diagnosed with autism as a child, has a deep fascination and passion for houses.

A time-lapsed video of Smith drawing one of his treasured townscapes will form part of the No Boundaries free public event at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on September 21 and 22.

His work and that of people of different abilities will be projected on the outside of the performing art centre and accompanied by music, lights, video and animation.
