An Artist Profile Of Mary Rodgers

I studied fine art and textiles at High Wycombe College of Art and Design, and pursued a career as a textile designer for leading national and international companies.

I live in Wing, in Rutland, where I have a studio overlooking the Chater Valley. I have established a reputation for a wide variety of subjects in watercolour, oils and pastels.

My work demonstrates an understanding of painting and drawing skills applied with the acute perception of colour and light.

I travel extensively throughout Europe with visits to the USA and South Africa, and exhibitions in the UK, France and Italy with my work is held in collections both in the UK and overseas.

I am visiting tutor to local art societies, historic houses and an active member of regional and local art organisations.
