“Willow is a little Koala from Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh, NSW, Australia. She was born in Symbio and is one of several koalas living in the Park. Bushfires, drought and loss of habitat have put koalas on the endangered species list. Up to 25% of the koala population was impacted by the 2020 East Coast bushfires. It’s a slow and sensitive process, but hopefully with the rescue, rehabilitation and release of this unique animal into re-established and protected areas, the species will recover. ” Nicole Grimm-Hewitt

Nicole GRIMM-HEWITT “ I was born in Melbourne in 1967 and moved to the South Coast of NSW with my family when I was 9 years old. I have always wanted to be an artist… In 1990 I started a career in Graphic Design, which has spanned over 25 years – working in a design studio, commercial printery and a publishing company. I have been a full time artist since 2013, exhibiting in group and solo shows. In September 2017, I moved to a small property in Bermagui on the Sapphire Coast of NSW.

 I create pieces that link to my love of the outdoors… My parents instilled in me a love for the outdoors, an appreciation for our beautiful country and more importantly the simple joys of just observing. It’s these things I try to capture in my art. I like to draw attention to the simple yet intricate beauty of things we often overlook… I choose to paint images that are calming, nostalgic or humorous. I’d like the viewer to be drawn into my art, and find in it something that stirs them. For me this is the ultimate goal. I’ve been told my paintings make people happy. What more could I ask for?
