Art From the Heart For Australia
Susan Korsnick, a local artist, writer and coach, is selling prints of her most recent work, Family, with 100 percent of the profit going to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, in Australia. The hospital provides for the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas and release back to their home range, if possible. York County resident Korsnick shares, “As bushfires rage across Australia, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the devastation and unfathomable loss of life. Courageous men and women are on site doing what they can. Those of us far from the tragedy feel it deeply and long to help in any way we can.”
In describing her work, she notes that the image represents everyone holding the koalas with love in our hearts. The lower background features the Australian Aboriginal symbol for fire, smoke, water and blood. The symbol on the upper right is their symbol for family. To Korsnick, the definition of family extends beyond bloodlines to include all beings the world over.
Ten-by-14-inch prints are available for $35. For more information, or to make a purchase, email [email protected] or visit SusanKorsnick.com.
