Derick and Tyrone Peachey are cousins from Wellington, NSW. They grew up as more of brothers than cousins and have always been extremely close.
Both Dek and Ty are proud Indigenous men that are striving to pass the importance of their culture down to their own children.
"For me Aboriginal culture is my identity. It is where I feel a sense of belonging. When I think about Aboriginal culture I feel whole as a man from the Wiradjuri Tribe. I do Aboriginal art to reconnect with my heritage and my people. I try to share our beautiful culture with the rest of the world." - Derick Peachey. Artist of the ISLA, KOBA & OTIS Swaddle.
"For me Peached gives me the chance to learn and be involved in my Indigenous culture. I was always very proud to be Indigenous but growing up in Cronulla I never really got the chance to learn about my culture. To have the chance to involve family and culture is a dream come true. I'm extremely proud of the products Kel and Dek have produced and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do." - Tyrone Peachey. Peached Owner and artist of the PENELOPE Swaddle.
Natalie Jade Collaboration
Natalie Jade is an Australian artist with indigenous roots that inspire her and naturally and express themselves through her artwork.
She originally started as an abstract artist over ten years ago but now considers herself more of an intuitive artist. The paint creates what it wants itself to be without any pre planning.
- Born into a family where “paint runs through their veins” she believes art is a journey of self discovery and expression. “In a way I’m letting others have a glimpse into my soul and also discovering who I am along the way.”
Natalie has always painted for herself and her own home and has now only started to share herself with the world.
”The purpose of my art is to create something beautiful that has a vibration through the colour and forms to uplift others and their surroundings”.
