American 21st Century Realist artist

  • Artworks
  • Biography
  • Event Listing



Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Roger is avid about traveling, studying, teaching, and competing in national painting competitions. These experiences expand his knowledge of history, nature, and architecture, which inspire his oil paintings.

Crediting historical master artists, such as John Carlson and Edgar Payne, Roger believes that "plein air" painting is an essential element to being a great artist. He spends countless hours studying and painting on location, to continue to perfect seeing important nuances of a scene, a day, or an object. He considers this necessary to create a successful painting. Roger captures the emotion of the scene he is painting, by drawing on his knowledge of painting and his dedication to art.

Roger's oil paintings have been displayed in galleries throughout the United States and have won many awards which include: First Place in the Barnes and Farms National Juried Art Show, Museum Purchase Award and third place at the Easton Plein Air Competition, Best of Show at the Central South National Juried Show, as well as the Gold Medal Award from the Hudson Valley Art Association. His work has also been accepted in the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition, and Salon International. Roger has been published by: International Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, American Art Collector Magazine, and the Artist Magazine. His works are owned by private collectors across the country and include many well-known celebrities and major corporations.

Roger shares his knowledge, teaching workshops throughout the country. He believes in capturing the essence of his subjects and instills this in his students whether teaching plein air, figurative, studio or still life.

"To capture the essence of the scene, making the viewer feel they can step into a different day, and understand the mood, and beauty of that day is my goal and inspiration." Roger Dale Brown
