Roger is 77. Living his formative years in ‘The Timbers’, viewing the fertile Clyde valley to the front and dramatic Steel production activity to the rear, ingrained in him an affinity with, and passion for recording the landscapes of work. Following recovery, after a spinal tumour removal at the age of 59, he decided to swap the corporate world for Art School. He loves the physicality of working with paint and mixed media to produce images and comments “it can be extremely rewarding and occasionally equally frustrating, but as long as I am fortunate enough to work with mark making materials it is unlikely to stop”.
This year, 2022, some of Roger’s work was exhibited as the ‘Craig and Beyond’ at the Cultural Centre Bellshill for the 30th anniversary of the closure of the Ravenscraig.
