Styling Up with the TSI Cray

Growing up as an urban Islander meant that we would receive frozen seafood from family coming to town. What I find fascinating to this day are the unique colours of the TSI Cray. Now one of my sons who works out on the reef will bring crayfish to share sometimes.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Francoise Lane

Art is a form of expression and extension of self. My art narratives are of place, people and country of significance to me. I also think art can be a tool to see the world from a different perspective. In 2013, Francoise began creating a series of artworks inspired by her connection to Hammond Island, in the Torres Strait. Her work reflects the love of the country and experiences with family on country, which she holds dear. Every print has a meaningful story behind it that tells of cultural values living on in her family, children and grandchildren. Her artworks are translated into surface pattern designs for textiles applications for interiors, soft furnishings and built environment. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Cairns Regional Gallery and Koorie Heritage Trust, Federation Square Melbourne, and Edinburgh, Scotland. Her international collaboration with Emily Millichip was a finalist at the Creative Edinburgh Awards 2018. She creates what makes her happy, loves to use, and then shares it with the world.
