Educated at the City of Norwich School and Norwich School of Art, Roger was trained as a Lithographic Artist at Jarrolds. In 1996 he retired from a career in printing and publishing to concentrate on painting and music. His paintings are shown in a number of East Anglian galleries and he regularly exhibited at the six-county Eastern Open, winning first prize in 2013. His work has also been shown at London's Mall Galleries. One of the founder-members of Breckland Artists, he is also a member of the influential Artworks group.
“I work solely in acrylics these days, I find the medium sympathetic to my way of working; quick-drying and ideal for flat areas. My choice of subject matter has over the years gone through several changes; currently I draw inspiration from aspects of the Breckland landscape, deconstructing and reconstructing, looking for new ways to interpret the images. Painting is a constant source of discovery.
