Kerrie Kenton

Kerrie Kenton communicates through art, travels, discoveries, and personal stories, often painful, of the Aboriginal people of Australia. Starting from the premise that Aboriginal society is the world's oldest culture, entirely based on the visual arts, dance and song, the artist seeks to go beyond the boundaries of gender, race and religion and calls each individual, without distinction, to share her vision. His work explores various disciplines between printmaking, drawing, sculpture and weaving. She often uses traditional materials. Frequently invited to schools, she explains the real and often hidden history of Australia to students.


Born in Sydney in the 60s, she studied design at the National Art School where she graduated in 1986. For 15 years, she worked in the fashion industry before dedicating herself to teaching and artistic creation. Since 2001 she exhibited her work regularly in Australian galleries.
