Roger’s final paintings go on show in Kent

Old High Street, Folkestone, 2021

Roger’s family is pleased to announce the opening of “Buildings of Kent”: an exhibition of his final paintings, and the launch of his new book bearing the same name.

Head to Grierson Galleries in Cranbrook from today, 17 September 2022, until 15 October to see 30 works, and for the opportunity to buy original pieces, limited edition prints, and books old and new by Roger.

This batch of paintings was made during the final 18 months of his life, while he underwent chemotherapy. Roger continued creating art with his usual steadfast determination.

Warehouses, Faversham, 2021

They capture many beautiful scenes from across the county which he called home for nearly 30 years, from Knole House to the lighthouses of Dungeness.

Characterful streetscapes, seafronts and sturdy castles are all depicted in this beautiful showcase and accompanying book, priced at just £10.00.

All artist’s profits from sales of paintings, limited edition prints and books will be donated to the charity Pancreatic Cancer UK – which provided Roger, and us, so much support.

Please note that the exhibition is open from Wednesdays to Saturdays until 15 October. For more information, please head to the Grierson Galleries website here.

Roger’s fourth book, Buildings of Kent

Sad news from Roger’s family

Our beloved Roger died on 6 July 2022 after undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.

His final book, “Buildings of Kent” is due for publication later this year.

This is set to be accompanied by an exhibition, with details to follow in due course.

Please note that sales of other works are paused for the time being.

Please keep checking back on his Etsy website – where all sales will resume at a later date.
