I am Katie Roberts, an Australian artist working in Melbourne.
I make everything from large-scale works on paper to projection installations.
Since finishing my Masters of Fine Art in 2006 on the topic of Light as a Medium, I have been been engaged in a ongoing body of work re-mapping the Yarra River (Birrarung), its history and environment. I aim to make work that includes and acknowledges the hidden histories still present on the land.
Often my work is about our human relationship to the environment; usually it is beautiful and meaningful.
Please feel free to contact me regarding my work at
I am available for artist talks, guest lectures, interviews, public speaking, philosophical discussion especially during long drives in the country, and afternoon tea.
I can assist you by
developing projects, creating art spaces, engaging community,
curating exhibitions, festivals and more!
If you need an artist on the ground, I can design, develop and execute ideas from small-scale drawings to huge building-sized murals!
