Please either phone or email Roger for an appointment to view his work.
Roger is a professional artist working mainly in the mediums of watercolour and oils. Based in Derbyshire for over twenty five years the dramatic and changing landscape of the Peak District provides constant inspiration for the paintings for which he is renowned.
The tradition of the Romantic movement in British landscape painting may be discerned in his work but a long association with farming informs an awareness that this is a working landscape; realism as opposed to idealism. Preferring, if possible, to work ‘en plein air’ he follows the Pre Raphaelite principle of truth to nature as can be seen in his closely observed work. Roger also paints urban scenes, still life and narrative subjects which frequently confront notions of mortality and the passage of time.
Roger has had work selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Watercolour Society Open, the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and has been a prize winner at the Derbyshire Open Art Exhibition on numerous occasions. He has paintings in the permanent collections of the Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, Wellingborough Borough Council, the Landmark Trust and Sir Paul Smith.
