About Roger Rockefeller

I was given my first oil painting set at the age of 12, and my first 35mm camera a year later. I was hooked. I have worked in many types of media over the years, but watercolor, colored pencil, pen & ink, and, photography are my current choices. Whether it be landscapes, seascapes, nature, or, still life, the subtlety and interplay of light and color are the ingredients that intrigue me.
In my professional life, I taught, but I always found time for the occasional art show or commission. Now I am able to devote full time to art, taking workshops, giving workshops, teaching art classes, doing art demonstrations, entering juried shows, doing one and two-person shows, and being actively involved with various art organizations.

I am grateful for having had the opportunity to learn with topnotch artists including Anne Abgott, Diane Maxey, Lee McVee, Ralph Murray, Carlton Plummer Doug Teller, and, Zoltan Szabo, to mention a few. These personal contacts, along with the many wonderful artists whose books I have read, continue to inspire and challenge me to grow in my profession.

I have participated in many juried shows in New York and Florida, and have won some awards along the way. I am a former member of the Central New York Watercolor Society, a participating member of the Florida Watercolor Society, and, a signature member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. My work can be seen at The Artistsí Guild of Anna Maria Island (AGAMI), located at 5414 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, Florida.
