    ARTIST & ARTWORK

    Melanie Hava Hailing from the Wet Tropics of Far-North Queensland and identifying as a Mamu Aboriginal woman, Melanie Hava draws continuous inspiration from the reef and rainforest for her artistic creations. Since her early years, Melanie possessed a firm certainty about her destined path as an artist, with art providing her a secure haven.Raised in the embrace of diverse backgrounds, Melanie's lineage is a fusion of her Aboriginal mother and Austrian father. Consequently, her artworks seamlessly interweave not only the distinct hues of Australia's red soils but also subtle European influences, represented by delicate gold leaf embellishments and intricate crystal patterns. In essence, her art harmoniously merges these two cultural threads.Melanie currently resides in Cairns, close to her mother's Country, where she feels close to the spirit of rainforest and reef. Her life evolves around her three children, gallery, and commissioned artworks.

    Turtle Design These paintings are influenced by the landscape of my home, the traditional land of the Rainforest Aboriginal people, right next to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef.

     My people are the Mamu. Our traditional lands are now internationally recognised, as the wet tropics of Queensland and The Great Barrier Reef are both World Heritage Areas. These places and their stories are irreplaceable and priceless to our people, to Australia and to the world. Sharing and caring about our World Heritage Areas is so important and it is my passion to share these stories through my paintings.
