In Memorium – David

It is with great sadness we acknowledge that David Peake, long time model member of the Life Models’ Society, has passed away early Sunday morning, 21 February 2021.

David was also an accomplished artist where his presence either modelling or drawing, was always welcomed, as his warmth and personality were infectious. He was a very popular model due to his exceptional poses and was a stalwart at the Whitehorse Artist Association’s life drawing sessions run by Rosemary Price where he drew and modeled. He will be dearly missed by those who knew him and those who drew him.

David battled motor neuron disease in his final months and passed away with his family by his side. The Melbourne life drawing/modelling community will be that little bit smaller and quieter without his presence.

The Life Models' Society (LMS) is a collective of artists' models. We were formed in 1989 to provide a means for life models to get to know each other, and as a support group to standardise rates of pay and to improve our working conditions. Although we do not have the resources to act as a booking agency, we publish a list of available artists' models which is sent to all our subscribers, and updated several times a year.
