Drawing upon her Meriam and Kaurareg heritage (Kerriri – Hammond Island), Lane is inspired by her cultural heritage and connection with country which informs her seductive surface patterns. Working as a practicing artist and interior designer as part of Indij Architecture and Design; a 100% Indigenous-owned architectural and design studio that she co-operates, Lane’s work straddles the intersection of art, design, and the built environment.
This new range of ‘BLAKbean’ fabrics and earrings takes inspiration from the black bean seed pod - a native tree growing in Tropical North Queensland.
"Drawing inspiration from my culture, woven bags, shells, and seeds, I explored baskets and forms in nature... the seeds of the black bean pod are round and oblong shaped, shiny brown in colour and silky smooth to touch... a lesson in nature's efficiency of design" says Lane.
