The Lady with a Koala Bear

Self Portrait with Koala Bear

This a representation of me in England, a country I called home. I mostly lived in post industrial terraced houses and have frequently walked hours of streets displaying identical houses, each slightly personalised with touches ranging from pictures of the duchess of Cambridge on her wedding day to skeletons to clay fairies…

My pet koala is an anomaly in this strange conformity, and so am I.


The koala bear is my version of Katharine Hepburn’s monkey (at the start of her career, she used to walk around the streets of Hollywood with a monkey to get noticed).
