Melanie Hava is a talented Aboriginal Artist, based in Far North Queensland. Her artwork is influenced by her diverse cultures and experiences in the outback, rainforest and reef country.
Melanie was born into interesting and diverse cultures: her father came from the oldest city in Austria, Enns (Upper Austria); her mother from one of the oldest cultures on earth, Aboriginal people of Australia.
While celebrating her Austrian heritage, Melanie also identifies through her Mum’s line as a Mamu Aboriginal woman, Dugul-barra and Wari-barra family groups, from the North Johnstone River catchment of the Wet Tropics of Far North Queensland and the
adjoining Great Barrier Reef sea country.
