Former Boorowa local, Sophie Corcoran has left her artistic mark on Paris recently.

The young artist has been involved in the Greater Port Macquarie’s ‘Hello Koalas Sculpture Project,’ which has seen 50 koalas set up in prominent locations around both

Port Macquarie, and now Paris. ‘Froggy’ was shipped to Paris where Ms Corcoran adorned him with Parisian landscapes.

“I am absolutely honoured to be chosen as an artist to be part of the wonderful Hello Koalas Sculpture Project of Port Macquarie,” Ms Corcoran said.

Ms Corcoran has lived and worked in Paris for the past three years having completed her studies at the International College of Management, Manly, Sydney where she met her fiancee Johann Calchera.

Sophie was born in Boorowa and had her primary education at St Josephs. The couple’s upcoming wedding is being held at the family home “Corcoran’s Plains" homestead.

Whilst in Paris Sophie has been teaching English, and guiding walking tours and working as an artist. Sophie and Johann are returning to live permanently in Australia, something her family is very much looking forward to.
