Roger Kent

Overview

Colourful flora and fauna dominate the portfolio of wildlife artist and botanical illustrator Roger Kent. Based in Norfolk, the local countyside and natural history of the area have inspired his paintings and his commercial work. Other influences include the Ladybird books of the 1960s and 70s, as well as the artworks of Charles Tunnicliffe and Stanley Badmin.

His passion is travelling to the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya to see the big cats – sometimes the subject of his paintings - which he tries to do once a year. He also plays hockey and football, and listens to punk.

Training


Roger chose to study at the Dyfed College of Art in Carmarthen, South Wales because it was one of two in the country offering a course specialising in natural history illustration.

Approach


Most of Roger’s illustrations are acrylic on board, but he’ll also occasionally use gouache and watercolour. He builds up many layers of paint to achieve the finished result.

Style


Roger’s style is highly detailed with acute attention paid to colour and tone. With so much computer-based illustration around, his hand painted work has the nostalgic feel of classic book illustration which many clients appreciate.
