Roger is self-taught, and his medium of choice is acrylics which he loves for their vibrant colours and quick drying properties. Although he dabbled with painting at school, where he obtained an A level in Art, he never really got to grips with it.

That is until 15 years ago when, after a chance remark, he picked up a painting brush and began to paint in earnest. Since then he has been exploring and interpreting the world around him through the medium of acrylic paint and his “have a go” mentality has resulted in a diverse range of pictures.

Although his inspiration comes from the world around him it is not a direct copy of reality but something a little to the side of it. Like painting an object seen in the corner of your eye, the possibilities of what it is or might actually be are endless. It is only when you turn to look directly at the object that its form becomes concrete and what has been created may only have a passing resemblance to it.
