Julia Rogers

Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay has had a strong influence on Julia Rogers.  Being an artist and painting nature was inevitable.  With a mother who is an artist, and a father who is a sportsman and a wildlife enthusiast, it's not surprising that she began drawing landscapes and animals at a very young age.  She excelled in art in high school, and was placed in college as a Fine Arts major before graduating from high school.  Rogers paints a wide variety of subjects.  Her extensive travel is documented in her work.  "I've had many periods of growth that can be attributed to a change of media or from travel," explains Julia.  Africa has been very inspirational in her work, and has become a personal favorite.  Rogers is a member of the Society of Animal Artists and has participated in their annual exhibits. Her work is included in many important collections around the world, including the Tom and Mary James/Raymond James Financial Art Collection.  Julia's work has been featured in several national magazines, including:  Informart Magazine, 1998;  Sporting Classics, Nov/Dec 1998;  Africa Issue, 2000; Wildlife Art News, March/April 2000.  Julia will be a featured artist at the "5th Annual Wildlife & Western Visions Art Show and Sale" on April 24th and 25th, 2004, in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Call or email the Plainsmen Gallery for more information about the show, or about Julia's original art and prints: jill@plainsmen.com, or call toll-free 1-888-779-2240.
