ARTWORK DESCRIPTION:

During the summer of 2019/20, Australia lost an estimated one billion animals in devastating bushfires. In addition, in 2022, koalas were added to Australia’s endangered species list for the first time. Belinda is proud to create this pastel drawing “Safe and Sound” to honour these beautiful animals and draw attention to their fragile state.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

Belinda de Maid is a self-taught pastel artist living in Melbourne, Australia. When she was about 10 years old she was gifted a box of Reeves Artist’s pastels that belonged to her great-grandfather and it was love at first sight! However it is only in recent years that Belinda has invested more time in her art, discovering a love for capturing Australian wildlife and shining a light on some of their most fragile species, such as the endangered koala.
