An artist. A human rights advocate. A mother.
Yarli Creative is a coming together of my yarka (children), my yakapna (family) and my mulana (spirit).
I create art to evoke a connection, a conversation and a space to educate.
My digital designs share my experiences as an Aboriginal woman and mother. I create illustrations to bring policy documents, reports, health promotions, children's books and resources, logos and Reconciliation Action Plans to life.
My identity is what drives me. It’s something that is within me and comes from the heart. My connection to my environmental surroundings is my blood line and vein to this country and the community which runs deep within.
I come from a strong line of women and am following in their footsteps; I aim to embody their full form on this earth and strive to make my mob proud of the work that I create and achieve.

"Madison was a delight to work with. She was given a brief to create artwork for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women to communicate the importance of cervical screening and HPV immunisation. She easily absorbed the details of the brief and delivered 12 culturally appropriate and beautiful paintings which portrayed the key elements of the brief visually."
