Originally from Nashville, Tennessee
Roger is avid about traveling, studying, teaching, and competing
in national painting competitions. These experiences expand
his knowledge of history, nature, and architecture, which inspire
his oil paintings.
Crediting historical master artists, such as John Carlson and
Edgar Payne, Roger believes that "plein air" painting
is an essential element to being a great artist. He spends countless
hours studying and painting on location, to continue to perfect
seeing important nuances of a scene, a day, or an object. He
considers this necessary to create a successful painting. Roger
captures the emotion of the scene he is painting, by drawing
on his knowledge of painting and his dedication
Roger's oil paintings have been displayed in galleries throughout
the United States and have won many awards which include:
First Place in the Barnes and Farms National
Juried Art Show, Museum Purchase Award and third place at the
Easton Plein Air Competition,
Best of Show at the Central South National Juried Show,
Gold Medal Award from the Hudson Valley Art Association.
His work has also been accepted
in the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition, and
Salon International. Roger has been published by: International
Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, American Art Collector
Magazine, and the Artist Magazine. His works are owned by private
collectors across the country and include many well-known celebrities
and major corporations.
Roger shares his knowledge, teaching workshops throughout the
country. He believes in capturing the essence of his subjects
and instills this in his students whether teaching plein air,
figurative, studio or still life.
