About Us

Wunya! Welcome to the Tribe! 🍇🍯

Our Mission Statement

Our Mission here at Wattle Woman is to inspire Our Tribe and all Australians to see a beautiful multiculturally inclusive Australia. Void of discrimination, judgement and bigotry. 

We want to normalise and integrate the beauty of contemporary First Nations art and culture into everyday fashion and as a proud part of a new age modern Australia. 

Our designs are created with this mission at heart and showcases a blend of Aussie native Flora and Fauna as well as First Nations cultural design to convey this message. We want you to feel confident, beautiful and proud to wear First Nations art and culture as a badge of Australian pride.

We use the word Tribe to embody the essence of this progressive ideal and those apart of Our Tribe. 

Thank you so much for checking out our website, mission and handmade goods. 


Get to know the Artist:

Hi I’m Lili, the designer and artist that is Wattle Woman. I’m a First Nations Australian Artist who has a thing for making one-of-a-kind earrings, paintings and ceramics.  

Wattle Woman begun in 2019 in my small studio, located in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia, maybe you’ve heard of our Softdrinks... or Bundaberg Rum!

I am inspired heavily by the context of my life, more specifically the beautiful outback to which I live. The nature of Australia, native flowers and wildlife play a large part in my life and therefore my artworks.

I feel a very strong connection to the Land that is Australia, the Ocean that surrounds us, and to the sky above. It inspires me to create beautiful things. I feel the most comfort when I’m lost in the bush along the coast of the crashing ocean, with my best friend and parter Morgan, walking our sassy pug named Pickles.

Additionally, I am deeply inspired and creatively influenced by Indigenous Australians culture, way of life and symbolism and customs, respectively. Specifically that of my blood-born Tribe Gubbi Gubbi or Kabi Kabi People. Alike all too many descendants of the First Nations Peoples in this day and age, unfortunately my family too fell victim to the loss of Aboriginal culture, knowledge, language and the way of life that my Ancestors passed down. I have been on a very spiritual and personal ongoing journey to find my roots and to explore my Indigenous heritage and culture with my Ancestors guiding me on my way. I continuously explore this as it is an integral part of my identity, to which for the entirety of my childhood left me feeling empty, lonely and just different than my peers. I am guided by my Ancestors, I draw on their Spirit, they have so much to teach me and I am so awake and open to learn. I belong to the Gubbi Gubbi Tribe, People, Land, Sea & Sky, way of life, Language, Culture. It is my life mission to get back to their way of life, off grid, permaculturing my land, fishin’ with my small Tribe, my family and living a true life.

My life in short, belongs to the wild. Growing up on the Eastern coast of Queensland was a fitting environment for my creative juices to flow. I was known around my small town for being that tan bikini-wearin’ barefoot brunette kid doing zoomies on the skateboard, running around loose outdoors with my camera, paints and ukulele. I am not me without nature, being out there is my home. It is like being with myself. This reflects deeply in my creative life to which I am sure is visible.

In the same way the stars align, I have been given this time in my life to choose who I want to be, what I do with my time and how I’m going to live. I’m 20, I love to create and paint, so I’m just gonna roll with that.
