Wanita Lowe

Yawayi dungha newayi (hello my name is) Wanita.

I’m a proud Dunghutti Biripi woman who was raised in the Riverina area and I am also accepted in the Wiradjuri community. I feel a deep connection to all three countries Salt water, Fresh water.

I work for Eora Tafe NSW on Gadigal Country as a Cultural Arts teacher and Cultural educator.

I also facilitate weaving workshops for the Blak Markets and National Indigenous Art Fair, The Rocks Sydney.

My work spans traditional and contemporary practices from weaving with native grasses to ceramics, painting, printmaking and exploring with drawing mediums such as ink ,pastel and charcoal.

All these practices incorporate inspiration from my cultural landscapes, stories and my own life experiences to form a contemporary perspective, that has altered and shaped the proud Aboriginal woman I am today.

My artwork reflects a journey of resilience, heritage and a continued fight to preserve Indigenous cultural knowledge by learning and sharing a deep respect for my family, ancestors, and communities that have embraced me.
