Northumberland-based artist, Mary Ann Rogers, paints vibrant watercolour paintings full of energy, from an in-depth knowledge of her subject matter. Her studio is surrounded by the wild hills of Northumberland, whose inhabitants, along with her own menagerie of birds, feature in her work.
Mary Ann has been a regular exhibitor at Upfront for many years. Her work strikes a chord with both the local folk, who are known for their love of sheep, foxhounds and trail hounds, also visitors who are struck by the beauty of the area and its inhabitants.
Mary Ann’s work is entirely in watercolour. She is a master of her medium, referred to in many publications and documentaries, using pure pigment and water, beginning with large strokes using a 3” wide brush, and staying with large brushes throughout, only resorting to small ones for fine detail, such as eyes.
The exhibition includes original paintings and framed limited edition giclee prints of Mary Ann’s watercolours.
