Koala Cuddles by Kathryn Lee

ARTIST NOTES: 76cms W x 56cms H. Olivia, Cassie and Ben are all snuggled up for a nap on a handy eucalyptus branch. This is togetherness at its best - It doesn’t matter that they're all slightly different colours- they belong together and take strength and comfort from each other. A lesson for us to learn here? Inspired by an array of koalas and photos over the years. This painting was inspired by numerous koalas I have seen over the years, both in the wild and in captivity, together with many photos. To me, they are quintessentially Australian, and the differing colours reflect the multicultural nature of our beautiful country. Thanks to @insituartroom for their room display. Koala Cuddles was created in Watercolour and Gouache on 638gsm Saunders Waterford paper in shades of Teal, Grey, Blue, Pink and Black

Artist: Kathryn Lee


Born in the UK, I am a self-taught artist living in Australia.

I began painting at the start of Covid, having a passion for arts and crafts.

Completing a City and Guilds Textiles Course, I emigrated to Sydney in 1986 - there I discovered ceramics. In 1995 my work was exhibited and sold at the Sydney Art Show, and Sydney stores.

Injury forced a successful change to resin art before discovering and falling in love with watercolour. I completed 16+ online certificated art courses to incrrease my skills, and my work evolved from loose flowing to more detailed work, pet portraits, commissions, alcohol ink, charcoal and pastels.

I draw inspiration from Australian flora and fauna, wildlife around the world, and interesting landscapes. Colour is a source of joy and motivation to me.

My paintings have been accepted into art shows, art competitions and awards. I was selected to participate in The Australian Watercolour Muster 2021, and invited to take part in the 6th Annual INternational Salon of Painting at the Menuinda Schneider Gallery in LA. I have also been a featured guest artist on an art website, and my artworks hang in many private homes. Commissions are welcomed.

My website launched in 2020 https://www.artbykathylee.com and I am on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/klkatlee/

My aim is to bring affordable, original art within reach of the average Australian family, and to encourage children to experience the joy to be found in creativity. See more of my artworks at https://www.artbykathylee.com
