Australian born Katherine Rooney, is a local emerging Sydney artist who studied at the National Art School, East Sydney, and the International School of Colour and Design, Sydney.

Katherine has been awarded the National Art School, Wisemans Ferry Art Camp, First prize, Highly Commended at The Sydney Royal Easter Show and most recently, her Wynne Prize entry was selected for the 2017 Salon Des Refuses exhibition at the S.H.Ervin Gallery, Sydney.

Images of Rooneys´s paintings have been used on packaging for Texta™, Jasart™ and Reeves™ art material brands in Australia.

Her current works are based on the fleeting glimpses of the country landscapes seen on her travels up and down the coast and hinterlands of NSW. Her works have been described as ...a piece of the country in the city clutter....
She returns again and again to draw and sketch the landscapes from the side of the road, and the cows confronting the viewer – you looking at me looking at you looking at me....

Katherine´s Next Solo Exhibition is September 2018
