Valerie Rogers AFC, SCA
Nature & Wildlife Artist
My interest as a naturalist has been one of the defining parts of my life. My art reflects this fascination with the natural world. Extensive time is spent in the mountains and woods observing animals in their homes, watching how they live….that is where the inspiration for my artwork comes from. There is a magic in recognizing another life form and paying it the respect it deserves.
My paintings are created with acrylic or watercolour on a variety of surfaces. I have an attraction to small organic details and try to accurately represent not only the feeling of nature but the form of it also. Simple tools, just a few brushes and a lot of thin paint put carefully on a well prepared surface.
I have been pleased to be recognized as BC Wildlife Federation Artist of the year twice, GOABC Artist of the Year and a Ducks Unlimited National Portfolio Artist.
Our natural world and its animals are such an essential part of our earth. My paintings celebrate their intrinsic value in our lives and feature that wonderful moment of connection.
