The Clarence River Serpent range was inspired by the artwork created by Jingalu. 'Jingalu' Melissa Craig traces her Aboriginal heritage to the Gumbayngirr and Yaegl Tribes in New South Wales.
She regularly exhibits her artwork here in Australia and around the world, including Washington DC, Santa Fe in New Mexico, San Francisco and Colarado. Jingalu is also a regular contributor to the jeans for genes foundation by painting on well-known persons such as Jessica Mauboy's jeans.
"I paint stories from my life experiences, from the Dreamtime in my area, from my family's experiences and from the overall history of Aboriginal Australia."
