Flora Warria, Moa Arts

My name is Flora Warria, I'm from Kubin Community On Moa Island In the Torres Strait.

i am a descendant of the Mualgal Tribe.My ancestral land which where i come from is Wug (now known as St Pauls Community).

Art and Craft has been a influence in my life from a very young age.

This knowledge has been past down to me from generation to generation through oral teaching from ancestral time, This practice is still a big part of our lifestyle today.

in my art work i like to use natural materials and resources that is collected in my local area, with traditional knowledge i try to express my art and craft into contemporary visual arts.

My aim is to teach the younger generations to preserve and maintain our rich culture knowledge and practices for our future.
