This Collaboration is with the incredible Maddy Connors, a beautiful Aboriginal woman. A proud and strong Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung and Gamilaroi artist, Maddy is the Founder and Creative Director of Yarli Creative.
This wall decal collection has been created from Maddys incredible original artwork and the creation stories are as follows:
YINDI - MY SUNSHINE
The sun rises on a bright future. Hope is in my hearts.
This piece was inspired by my daughter Yindi.
Yindi is a common Aboriginal girl's name, and is believed to mean sun. Although there is limited information about which Aboriginal language group this meaning comes from. The word Yindi is also used by Yolngu people and translates to 'mother'.
Our little sunshine will brighten any nursery, or look amazing as a feature piece in any room.
Yakapna (translates to family in Yorta Yorta) gathering.
The coming together of people is so magical in our communities. It sparks joy, life, engagement, and happiness. In these trying times, we have our families, our supports, our people, our connections to hold us strong.
The sun is warm and the love around makes us feel warm and whole.
THE YULILA'S (translates to mountain in Yorta Yorta)
As a family we bind together to climb the mountains, to face the challenges, to create new opportunities and to stand as one.
In the warmth of the sun we see the other side, we know there is a new beginning. The yulilas represent that. They hold the knowledge, they hold the truth, they create challenges that we can overcome. Almost like our guiding ancestors, lifting us up, showing us the way. Be strong like the yulilas.

Leave for 24 hours before applying to ensure surface is completely dry. Avoid using chemical cleaners, they may cause the adhesives to fail. Do not remove backing until you have worked out the placement of decals on wall. Allow newly painted walls at least 40 days to outgas before application. Ensure you have used a good quality primer and please review our Check your Paint section below prior to purchasing. Please read disclaimer section below prior to purchase. DO NOT use on bubbling or peeling paint. Walls must be smooth – they will not adhere to textured surfaces ie. rough concrete, rendered or brick wall. It is very important that you allow at least 40 days concerning a newly painted surface to dry. Bubbles or failure can occur if the paint is still outgassing/flashing off. Also make sure all drywall painted surfaces or a repainted surface have been primed (with a good quality primer) and painted in order to not leave possible residue or peel paint upon removal. If you are unsure about a particular paint product, please contact & check with the brand of paint you have used prior to application to ensure it is suitable for your wall covering needs.

If a bubble appears over the days following your installation, pressing and lightly smoothing can remove it. This can occasionally happen if oil, dirt or dust is on your surface. You can use a sewing pin to pop the bubble and re-smooth with your fingers to allow the trapped air out. In the rare instance bubbles continue to re-appear, this generally indicates that something is preventing the adhesive from sticking - you may need to relocate your wallpaper, decals or mural. Most bubbles are caused by walls that are recently painted (in the last 30 days) or cleaning chemicals that were used prior to installation and not removed with a warm, damp cloth.
