Artist Bio - Carole Rogers
A self taught artist, with a background in interior design and gallery experience.
Prior to moving to the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, she operated galleries in both Melbourne and Ivanhoe over a period of nine years, where she had much opportunity to explore diversity in art.
Although sometimes working in pastel and water colour, on smaller scale traditional styles, most of her works are on large scale canvases in acrylics or oils. Many of her paintings being commissioned works, designed specifically to compliment style and personality and over all enhance a space. Now she works mostly on abstracts inspired by water, it's colours and movement, what lies beneath, and also it's relationship to the land. Other pieces she enjoys working on are abstract works inspired by nature's garden.
Over the past three years since returning to a favourite pastime, she has both exhibited and sold works at such art shows as Camberwell, Red Hill, Dromana, Flinders, Sorrento and Blairgowrie.
