"White cockatoos fly over my home everyday. On my daily walk, I see them nesting in the trees and love hearing how they chatter. This painting is an expression of my love for these birds."
Damien Koulouris was a professional dancer living in New York when his future was turned upside down. Suffering a broken neck and back, Damien began to deal with chronic pain and ongoing mental health issues. His NDIS package has allowed him to access art classes.
Damien uses art as a means of passing the time and as a tool for distraction from his challenges. He is discovering that art is offering him new opportunities to excel in ways not previously considered.
