Meriam Mir (Erub-LMS)
I started practicing art in 2007 whilst working at TAFE. At the time I was inspired by fellow artists Nino Sabatino and Alick Tipoti who encouraged me to follow my own styles and patterns. I specialise in lino printing on paper in which I have learnt from observing others. The themes that I base my work on is marine life, hunting, diving, and fishing.
Art is important to me because it is a way of keeping knowledge of my culture and identity alive. This way I can share with others who I am.
