Back in stock soon.
Debra Murray (Girramay / Jirrbal Traditional Owner) is an arts worker and artist, who works across many mediums. Motivated by her connection to country and family Debra is a painter, weaver, photographer, ceramicist and has directed and filmed two documentary films. Debra is passionate about spending time looking after her country with its unique landscape - and about expressing this through her art making.
Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre is home to multi-award winning artists and craftsmen. Located in Cardwell, Queensland, Girringun represents artists from nine Traditional Owner Groups: the Nywaigi, Gugu Badhan, Warrgamay, Warungnu, Bandjin, Girramay, Gulnay, Jirrbal and Djiru people spanning 25,000 square kilometres of country in the state's far-North. Objects from this country are significantly different from those of much of the rest of Australia. Weaving is done by both men and women, and the diversity of resources between land and sea have resulted in a vast array of implements being crafted for use.
As a living functioning art centre, Girringun serves as a creative and community hub, as well as a culturally enhancing income stream. Every purchase supports the artists, their communities and the important work of Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre.
