Grace Lillian Lee is an artist, designer and curator from Cairns who uses her fashion knowledge as a platform to explore her cultural identity. Of multicultural background – including German, Danish, English and Chinese – it is her Torres Strait Islander heritage that has captured her imagination.

Using a weaving technique commonly known as the grasshopper or prawn weave, each neckpiece takes 2 hours to weave and when finished uses 13 meters of cotton webbing.

Lee is the founder of the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair Fashion Performances, established in 2011.
