The painting is titled Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming) - Cockatoo Creek by Shikera Pitjara Petrick at Warlukurlangu artists.
Shikira Pitjara Petrick was born in 1998 in Alice Springs Hospital. For several years, she travelled the country, visiting family and learning about her land. Shikira now lives in Alice Spring with her partner and two children – Lashani, who was born in 2014 and her son born in 2017. She speaks Alyawarra and English, and can also understand Warlpiri. She mainly paints her mother’s Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming – Cockatoo), ‘Dreamings’ that relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. These stories were passed down to her by her mother and her mother’s mother before her for millennia.
