Craig • Layer
Wanaruah • Nation
Craig is a descendant of the Wanaruah people – a proud Aboriginal nation from the Hunter Valley region of NSW. Through his art Craig anigunya (welcomes) you to the diversity and richness of the land of his ancestors, an area of mountain ranges and deep valleys, life-giving rivers and estuaries that have provided abundance for all the Nations of the Hunter region. Each of Craig’s paintings is a story that unfolds before your eyes, bringing the ancient culture of the Wanaruah people to life in today’s modern world. But more than that, Craig’s paintings are also a journey of his own self discovery as he reconnects with his cultural heritage.
