Tali Ngura (Sandhill Country) By Kathy Maringka

Above is a painting by Kathy Maringka called Tali Ngura (Sandhill Country), 2016. I saw it without attribution so looked it up using Google Image Search, which I have to say is really neat. This was the first time I used it. It immediately found the painter, who I learned from this bio had humble beginnings but still managed to create such beauty.

Kathy was born in the bush, near Ernabella, SA [South Australia]. Her family moved into the mission at Ernabella and she went to school there, before moving to Victory Downs, a cattle station near Ernabella. Kathy worked as a Cultural Tour Guide at Uluru, guiding tourists and cleaning and washing dishes at the tourist camp.

This is why I love the internet.
