About Yorkshire Artist Angie Rogers
Capturing the spirit of the South Pennine moors of West Yorkshire, my goal is to encourage you to make deeper connections with the natural world and wild places.
Recognising that longing for breathing space, distant views and the elemental,
I make atmospheric drawings and paintings that are authentic and strong.
My work celebrates the rugged moorland, dynamic cloudscapes and rapid squalls that are such a feature of around here.
Intricate woodcuts and linocuts on the other hand, bring into closer focus the wild birds such as Curlews, Lapwings, Plovers and many more which I am lucky enough to see on my daily walks.
"Thank you for sharing your
observations so skilfully"
Susan from Harrogate
Recently I was invited to have a small solo exhibition of my bird woodcuts at the marvellous Brontë Parsonage Museum (link to their website) in Haworth which is just over the hill from Hebden Bridge.
This year the museum's focus is on the Brontës and the wild. The Brontës owned a copy of outstanding wood engraver Thomas Bewick's book of British Birds which is currently on display. Thomas Bewick is one of my printmaking heroes so it was a real pleasure to make this connection and show my work in the home of the enigmatic literary sisters.
You can visit me in my studio (you need to make an appointment - see the Contact page). I am currently working at Linden Mill in central Hebden Bridge.
All of my studios have been in old textile mills. Inevitably after a while, each one gets redeveloped as apartments and I have to move on to the next characterful and gently crumbling building. Only this time there isn't another one so I'm making the most of things while I can!
