Featured Artists

Thomas 'Connie' Pedro

Thomas Pedro is a self-taught artist who specialises in creating unique Torres Strait Islander headdresses. Influenced by history, Thomas’ headdresses are made with natural fibres and materials such as feathers and straw.

Thomas Pedro is from the Wagadagam Tribe. His wind is Kuki (North West Wind) and his totem is the Koedal (crocodile).

“When I create headdresses, I try to make them each differently so no two are the same. I design them from the era when my forefathers danced in the Torres Strait,” – Thomas Pedro.
