Northumberland-based artist, Mary Ann Rogers, paints vibrant watercolour paintings full of energy, from an in-depth knowledge of her subject matter. Her studio is surrounded by the wild hills of Northumberland, whose inhabitants, along with her own menagerie of birds, feature in her work and delight the visitors to her country house gallery. Mary Ann’s work is highly collectable, is exhibited in selected galleries throughout the UK, and features in many private collections worldwide.
About the art
I get inspiration looking out from the studio windows, the valley, river Rede and hills, dotted with outcrops, woodlands, windblasted hedges, sheep, cattle and wildlife. My curiosity and desire to study, draw and paint new subjects has taken me to pig farms, private exotic bird collections, wildlife and waterfowl parks, zoos and safari parks as well as the hills and field surrounding my home. There are a million paintings in my head, but not enough hours in the day!
