Kurwingie Kerry Giles

Kurwingie Kerry Giles was born in 1959 in Waikerie, in the Riverland of South Australia.  Her love and concern for the health of the Murray River was the major subject of her art work.  She painted many large, sometimes 5 meter long, canvases about the changes to the Murray River from pre colonial times. Kurwingie Kerry Giles died in 1997 and a retrospective of her work was held at Tandanya in 2004.
