Julia Rogers

Becoming an artist who specializes in painting nature was inevitable for Julia Rogers, whose mother was an artist and whose father was a sportsman and wildlife enthusiast.  She excelled in art in school on the Chesapeake Bay on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and studied art in college.

Rogers has worked in several mediums over the years.  She paints a variety of subjects, and her extensive travel in Europe, Africa, and Central America is documented in her work.  She notes, “I’ve had many periods of growth that can be attributed to trips I have taken.”  Africa has been very inspirational for her work and has become a personal favorite of the artist’s.  Rogers explains, “Seeing animals in their natural environment and witnessing their interactions in person changed the way I painted.”

Rogers has been represented in many important exhibitions, including the Wildlife & Western Visions Art Show, St. Petersburg, Florida; “Kalihari to Kilimanjaro,” a three-person exhibition at the Hiram Blauvelt Museum, Oradell, New Jersey; American Art in Miniature, Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa; and the annual exhibitions of the Safari Club International and the Society of Animal Artists.  Her work is in the collection of Raymond James Financial.
