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 of being a great artist. He spends countless hours studying and painting on location 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 to art.
