Repairing the Future
by Erica Lyn Schmidt
This piece is my response to the devastating wildfires in Australia. The koala is a symbol for empathy, and their future may depend on our own caring intervention.
Like in the Japanese art of Kintsugi, these koalas are made more beautiful with ornamental repair. The burns on the mother have been mended, and their future has been made whole with her golden joey. This is an optimistic view of tomorrow but I believe it is possible thanks to the efforts I’ve seen around the world.
All proceeds from this sale will be donated to The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. This organization treats injured koalas, protects their habitat, promotes breeding programs, and fosters education.
Prints of this piece are available here as an extension of this fundraiser. I want to thank Every Day Original for accommodating this special sale.

I share my love of art and birds as the Creative Director of the BirdWhisperer Project online art community, and my work can also be found in scientific museums, children’s books, and private collections.
In addition to creating fine art, I collaborate on many forms of illustration work with my husband Anthony J. Schmidt. We call Wisconsin our home, which we share with our mini-artist daughter Penny.
