Art story - White cockatoo
“This design I did is the totem of my mother. It’s called ‘white cockatoo’. I drew all the bushes and leaves from the branch, because that’s what the white cockatoo eats for its meal.
This is my first time that I did screenprinting. I love doing all my art, because it makes my mind feel good. I like putting designs on fabric because it helps continue my art and my passion.”
