The Kirris which is a rainbow Lorikeet parrot was inspired by its beautiful colours of its feathers that’s why I did my first coloured lino reduction print.

When mangos season, my home mango trees are covered with kirris and always act like my alarm clock in the morning. A pest sometimes because they get to the ripe mangoes before we can and when we rake our yard, its always covered with mango skins, mango seeds and mango crumbs.

The kirris is one of the island beautiful birds which I had as an pet which later escaped. I love the colours of the kirris.
