ITSIA - Indigenous Torres Strait Islander Art
www.itsia.com

Indigenous Torres Strait Islander Art (ITSIA) is an Australian web portal promoting Torres Strait Islander Art, whilst promoting cultural identity and supporting cultural independence.

The ITSIA website features profiles of Torres Strait Islander artists and an online gallery where people can browse affordable artworks for the home, office or that special gift.

Michelle Bell and Scott Elphinstone founded the ITSIA website in 2005. After residing in Torres Strait during 2003 – 2005, they conceived the idea of promoting islander artists and obtained funding and support through the NEIS program (New Enterprise Incentive Scheme) to launch ITSIA and bring awareness of TS artists to the public.

Michelle is employed full time as a Project Coordinator for local Council and Scott works part time with the YMCA youth skate program and is a visual artist. Every moment of spare time is dedicated to developing ITSIA as a successful project.

The collected dream for ITSIA is to grow to a size capable of sustaining a Torres Strait Islander art specific gallery and studio on the Australian mainland.
