Posy Pincushions - Natives for natives
All proceeds from the sale of these limited edition lino prints will go to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital to help them save as many koalas as they can who have suffered in the recent devastating bushfires. Please help if you can. If you don't fancy a lino print, you can donate directly here - https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-thirsty-koalas-devastated-by-recent-fires
Fires south of Port Macquarie (Crestwood) have recently devastated bushland which has a high number of breeding koalas in the area. This group of koalas is one of the most genetically diverse groups in Australia and is of enormous national significance.
There are fears as many as 350 koalas have perished with approximately 75% of the fireground footprint being prime koala habitat.
The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is an animal welfare, scientific research and education facility that will send out and conduct search and rescue exercises in the hope of finding surviving koalas. Any surviving koalas will be brought into the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital for assessment and treatment.
This original lino print comes in three colours and is a very limited print run of only 10 prints per colour. Printed on off-white Japanese Ho-Sho paper, this piece was part of my 2019 "Flora" exhibition. The print area measures roughly 125 x 175mm and comes unframed.
