Born in Hobart in 1881, Rodway studied at the Hobart Technical College under Sydney Long and at the Royal Academy School, London. Principally a portrait painter, she worked from a studio in Hunter Street, Sydney after her return to Australia in 1915. She is best known for her oil paintings, although her favourite medium was pastel. She married Walter Moore in the mid 1930s and did little work after that time. Her last major commission, in 1937, was a portrait of her father, Leonard Rodway, CMG (Tasmanian Government Botanist for thirty years), for the Hobart Art Gallery. Rodway died in Hobart in 1971.
