This story is part of a collection of Mother is Earth. This is the celebration of Earth and what it provides to our people. We must care for the land as we care for ourselves, the Earth is our mother it gives and provides nourishment to us all. We must respect her.
As a proud Mayi woman from North Western Queensland I want to share my love of art and interpretation of empowerment of my people.
The colours are those that cover my country “Mayi Country” I want to pay my respect to the land my people come from and Mother Earth, as she is our safety and our protector providing us all shelter.
We must connect back to her “Mother Earth” and live in peace and harmony with the land. Care for the land as it cares and provides for us.
I want to share this piece with love and harmony.

How to apply I Heart Wall Art wallpaper
There's no need for equipment or for hiring a professional! Follow our tips and tricks to get your walls looking amazing in no time.
Preparing your walls
> If your wall has recently been painted it is important to allow 3 days when applying our wallpaper as bubbles and failure for the adhesive to stick can occur if the paint is still outgassing.
> Walls must be smooth as the easy hang self -adhesive will not adhere to textured surfaces eg brick wall or rough concrete.
> Fill any holes and remove any hooks, give the wall a wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any dust particles as they can cause air bubbles.
> You will need a ladder, a sharp Stanley knife, measuring tape, a cloth and in some cases a trusty assistant.
To apply your wallpaper:
> To begin application, just peel the backing paper by 20cm and crease paper.
> Align the first panel at your desired starting point – the first panel is the most important panel, you must line it up correctly as if it is not square with the wall it will affect lining up any subsequent panels. Starting from the far left hand side of your wall, moving left to right , top to bottom.
> Start carefully peeling back the backing paper around 30 cm at a time
> Press down on the panel applying pressure from the middle to the outside edges using firm pressure , this method works best.
> It is ok to peel the panel back to release any bubbles
> Your wallpaper can be repositioned several times although it may become less effective in adhering to your surface if too much dust, dirt or fibres become collected on the surface.
> Bubbles can be easily removed by light rubbing and light pressure or in some cases piercing the bubble with a pin then smoothing it out in a circular motion with a clean cloth.
> Finally use a sharp blade to trim any excess from the base and sides of the wall, make sure you use a new blade.
