Artist Statement I was commissioned to paint Flora's portrait in January 2011. She lives in Mosman Park. I spent some time at the girl's family home, observing her lovely and privileged life. She has such a sunny. lively disposition that I asked her parents permission to paint her for the awards. Relaxed at Flora's family home with the dog, summed up for me, as a visitor, how it would feel to live in Mosman Park. There is a freshness to the environment that brings a feeling of joy. Flora is a metaphor for that feeling as she progresses through life with the openness of a child with so much to look forward to new.
