Katy Woodroffe is an Australian artist who lives and works in Hobart. Her work has been featured extensively in solo exhibitions both within Australia and overseas.

Travel has been an important influence on her arts practice and she has been awarded many international residencies, including Paris (twice), Greece, India and Spain.

Most recent solo exhibition “The Lost Garden”

Handmark Gallery, Hobart, August 16 – September 2, 2019

It’s these rich ideas that Woodroffe weaves through all her work that gives it the poignant weight that makes it so much more than simply beautiful.

Studio visit by the Sydney based Culture Scouts as part of their Dark Mofo tour – June 17, 2018 (culturescouts.com.au)

“Katy Woodroffe’s Sandy Bay artist studio turned out to be our final day sweet treat. It was like sharing an intimate moment with your best friend over a plate of nice brownies by the fire. Katy’s stories of life, travel, history, family and creativity had us as spellbound as her exotic acrylic works on paper”.
