” Koalas are a vanishing species, yet as we know the presence of a single species is not wholly independent. Co-dependence and symbiosis is imperative to the success and survival to entire ecosystems. This piece speaks of balance and necessity, in the pursuit of perfect harmony.” flossy-p

flossy-p was originally lured into a life of colour as a youngster by her obsession with Boy George’s rainbow of eye-shadow. Since then she’s been trained at UNSW College of Fine Arts, has exhibited in Australia and the USA, has been included in numerous publications, and created countless personal commissions for clients. A while back she sea-changed from inner-Sydney to a bushy beach side town, where her creek side home backs onto a koala corridor reserve. This move changed a lot of things in her life including what she paints, now filling her pages with discoveries from her new home. With a love of nature, she draws and paints native Australian plants and animals all from her home studio in Northern NSW (while her two children scamper around her).
