About Yorkshire Artist Angie Rogers

I make art that captures the spirit of the South Pennine moors of Yorkshire and encourages you to make deeper connections with the natural world and wild places. 

 

The longing for fresh air, distant views and the elemental provides the energy behind my work.. My atmospheric drawings and paintings have a strong sense of place and are an authentic expression of my emotions as I experience this landscape.

My artwork celebrates the rugged moorland, dynamic weather and rapid bursts of intense light that are such a feature of around here. 


Intricate woodcuts and linocuts on the other hand, bring into closer focus wild birds such as Curlews, Lapwings, Plovers and many more which I am lucky enough to see on my daily walks.

Ruth from The Wirral

Recently I was invited to be Resident Artist with a solo exhibition of my bird woodcuts at the marvellous Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth which is just over the hill from Hebden Bridge.

 

The exhibition was related to the museum's focus on the Brontës and the wild.

It was a great pleasure to make this connection and show my work in the home of the enigmatic literary sisters.

You are most welcome to visit me in my studio (you do need to make an appointment though - see the Contact page). I work at Linden Mill in central Hebden Bridge.

 

All my studios have been located in ex textile mills. Inevitably after a while, each one gets redeveloped as apartments and I have to move on to the next characterful old building. Fortunately I enjoy the challenge of creating a cheerful and productive space where you can view some of my work alongside a few intriguing objects and many of  my vintage tools.

I find Instagram a great way to share frequent images and notes about what I've been up to in my studio as well as out and about.

 

I also make a few videos about my evolving art processes and lovely things I've seen on my walks. So if you enjoy social media you can follow me there:
