Growing up by the river in South London, Deptford, Roger's family worked on the barges for many years which urged his passion to paint the river. Roger trained at The Sidcup School of Art in the late Fifties and later joined the BBC Graphic Design Department in 1963.
During his thirty-two years with the BBC, Roger worked on Documentary features, Drama, Music and Art and Children’s programmes, designing many high profile title sequences including:-
The Old Grey Whistle Test, Lovejoy, Big Deal & The House Of Elliot
Throughout this period Roger painted at every opportunity and exhibited at the Grafton Gallery, Mayfair and at the infamous Liberty’s located in London’s West End.
On retirement from the BBC, he began to paint full time and has since exhibited at The Hawker Gallery in Amersham and the Mall Galleries in London.
