I am from the Meuram tribe and my totems are Gainau and Nam. I have always enjoyed making things with my hands and have always crocheted and sewed, I want to make things that represent myself, my family and surroundings. I am presently enjoying weaving and making ghost net bags.
I am from the Saisarem tribe and my totems are Tabo and Karr. When I was younger I had many family commitments but now I can enjoy coming together with other women to make things. We share stories, experiences and learn and make things together.
I was born on Poruma and I am from the Samu Clan, this is also my totem. When I was young my favourite hobbies were crochet, bead making and sewing. As a member of the Art Centre I enjoy learning new things and sharing knowledge with others
I am from the Meuram Tribe and my totem is Beuger. My art reflects my culture and my mixed heritage from the Torres Strait and the Pacific islands. I enjoy making art, and want to share what I do with others.
My tribe is Meuram and my totem is Nam. I enjoy expressing my relationship to the sea and the link between people's surroundings, objects and our culture. I love the beauty of our environment and as a small girl my father taught me many things. Often my work revolves around the stories from my father and the things he taught me as a child.
