"Akana Ai Kap meaning Aka's greatest harvest is about her teaching and values of gardening that she taught my family to plant crops and at the right time to harvest when it's needed to be used for feasting and celebrations." 

“My name is Fiona Mosby; I am a mid-career artist and Torres Strait Islander woman. I believe in the importance and value for me as a young woman pertains to the values, beliefs and unique identity that what we share, carry and can impact in the lives of our family, community and who we are as individuals. As an emerging artist, my speciality is printing-making: linocut, etching, and screen-printing. I have also explored and practiced weaving techniques from a young age with my grandmother, which I retell in my art. As well through my employment working at Moa Arts, I have learnt many other invaluable techniques and skills. As a young passionate woman, I am dedicated and committed to being a role model for the younger generations, to use what knowledge I have about culture and tradition to make an impact, to tell the story of an island woman- in preserving and embracing our cultural rights. Art is my tool to visually communicate my personal values and beliefs.” - Fiona Mosby
