The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus), is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats.
Koalas typically inhabit open eucalypt woodlands, and the leaves of these trees make up most of their diet. Because this eucalypt diet has limited nutritional and caloric content, koalas are largely sedentary and sleep up to 20 hours a day. They are asocial animals, and bonding exists only between mothers and dependent offspring.

Professional artist Tracie MacVean works full-time at GIGS Artists Studios, Wodonga, Australia.
Tracie’s paintings question our role in relation with the natural world and how we perceive ourselves to create deeply conceptual and thought provoking works.
Environmental themes have always dominated her paintings yet a passion for the human form is ever present to create a sense of either unity or conflict between human beings and nature. Her paintings are infused with raw emotion as viewers are drawn in by the layers of meaning in each work.
