Janet Rogers

Janet Rogers trained at Reigate College of Art, England and gained the Surrey Diploma in Textile Design. She then worked for Heal fabrics in London and later spent six years working as Art Editor at an Oxford publishers.

Her exhibitions include the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, where she was selected by the Financial Times as one of the most promising newcomers at the exhibition, and the Royal Society of Miniatures Annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. She has also held a one woman show in France and her work is now sold extensively in the USA. Her paintings have been purchased by important collectors both in this country and abroad; commissions include paintings for galleries and for interior designers in London and throughout the UK.

The technique which she uses in the majority of her work is that used by Samuel Palmer in the early 19th century - that of mixing gum arabic with water colour, applying in layers and then varnishing. This gives a unique three-dimensional effect, which captures perfectly the feeling of the English countryside. Her most recent work is abstract, using special techniques and incorporating gold leaf.

Her style has a timeless quality and the colours compliment and harmonize with any setting. Due to the success of her work, Janet Rogers has been published by leading fine art printers, who have produced several of her paintings as limited edition prints.
she paints full time from her studio in Bruges, Belgium.
