The Bullroarer - Connecting Through Culture

I am proudly Meriam Mir from Erub (Darnley) Island, Torres Strait. I have been a contemporary visual artist for 20 years. My favourite techniques are fineline drawing, acrylic painting, printmaking and textile art. I am also a graphic designer and illustrator. My inspiration comes from my connections to country and sea, the pride I have in my cultural identity and heritage, the lives of my honourable ancestors, and my family.
