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.
