Roger Griffiths is a self-taught landscape artist who uses watercolours and acrylic-based mixed-media. He studied Geography and Geology at Hull University, and then Landscape Architecture at Manchester University. After retiring from his own landscape architecture business, he has had more time for painting.
Roger was elected as an Associate of the RBSA in 2008 and a Member in 2011. His paintings have been chosen several times for the national exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours at the Mall Galleries and in 2015 he appeared on Sky TV’s Landscape Artist of the Year programme, painting at Trelissick in Cornwall.
Roger aims to express the underlying patterns in the landscape and uses acrylic mixed media sometimes combined with geological, Ordnance Survey and satellite maps to express the landscape. Areas of transition between lowland and upland are of particular interest. Typical subjects include his local area of Northamptonshire and the Midlands, but also extend to the Peak District, Cotswolds, Wales, Lake District, the Pennines and the North East and South West of England.
Roger sells his work in galleries, through the RBSA and via his own website where there is an extensive portfolio of his paintings. He also regularly undertakes commissions, workshops and demonstrations of his work and techniques.
