Artist Biography:

Winner of the 2018 Works on Paper prize in the MAP, Nexus Gallery, Bellingen, Bronwyn Rodden grew up in Sydney but has also lived in regional NSW and travelled widely.

She has also completed commissions for the Solitary Islands Marine Park Authority and the Coffs Harbour Regional Museum.
