100 Artworks for a Koala entry: Title: ‘ Koala Dreams   

Size:  W 29.7 cm x H 42cm (A3) | Medium: watercolour and acrylic on 300 gsm cotton watercolour paper 

 Koala Dreams is a hopeful piece. It looks forward to a future where the Australian bush has recovered and koala joeys like this can enjoy the new growth of gumtrees in their natural habitat. This little joey represents rebirth and the fervent wish that we can replenish the depleted koala numbers. Thanks to the tireless efforts of firefighters, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation groups, I hope this isn’t too distant of a reality and that we can all enjoy these beautiful and unique creatures for generations to come. ’  Olivia YORK
