Roger Dellar was born in 1949 in Hertfordshire. He is a self-taught professional figurative artist working in oil, watercolour, pastel and mixed media. Working from his studio or plein air, his personal interpretation of everyday life captures the behaviour and character of the situation - the waiter taking the order or the dancer entertaining the crowd.
His understanding of light is interpreted with every brush stoke allowing the viewer to become part of the scene.
He is a member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, The Pastel Society, and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters. Roger is an active member of The Wapping Group. He has won numerous awards including the ROI Cornelissen Prize for Painting and the Pastel Society, The Arts Club Award. His work can be found in many private collections worldwide.
