Size: W 300mm x H 410mm | Medium:  Caran Dache colour pencils on a hot press 300 gsm watercolour paper

“This Illustration was inspired by the beautiful koalas that live in and around the area that I am lucky enough to call home.   My family and I have been lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of Northern NSW where koalas roamed freely in our back yard and you could often hear them calling to each other at night. I would spend my time searching the tree tops in the hope that I would spot one and often I did. There is an incredible group of people here who rescue these little guys when they are sick or in trouble and they work tirelessly to make sure we will always be blessed to be able to live harmoniously amongst them. This piece is dedicated to all of those beautiful people who make this dream a reality. I hope that this fabulous project inspires more people to care for these beautiful creatures and to continue creating new habitats where they can safely live.” Nayana ILIFFE
