Our Story

Bayadherra is founded by proud Aboriginal Yorta Yorta brother and sister Luke and Siena Tieri. As descendants of the James Family, their cultural origins are embedded in Yorta Yorta Nation; Shepparton Victoria. Luke and Siena's grandfather Glenn James OAM is a respected Elder within community and is recognised as the first Indigenous man to umpire Australian rules football in the AFL.


As young emerging artists with an Aboriginal business, their purpose is to advance reconciliation and promote cultural awareness, education and understanding by reflecting their traditional storylines and Indigenous heritage in contemporary art pieces designed for your home or office space. 'Bayadherra' in Yorta Yorta language means 'turtle', the spiritual animal totem of the Yorta Yorta clan: a name reflective of Luke and Siena's Aboriginal identity and connection to community and Country.

Community, authenticity and respect is at the heart of Bayadherra; Luke and Siena pride themselves on their collaborative attitude and unique ability to provide culturally meaningful art and design services to support clients and community. 


Bayadherra is 100% Aboriginal owned and operated and endorses ethical creative practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
