Meet the Artist Night with Acacia Rogers
Acacia Rogers Featured Artist Hammond Castle Museum September 2019
“My name is Acacia Rogers, a long time New England resident. The beautiful scenery, lakes, mountains, trees, and wildlife here have all been an incredible inspiration for my work throughout the years. I have been an avid painter for over a decade, but have been drawing and creating many types of art my entire life. It was almost an impulse from the moment I could grasp a pencil. I am mostly self taught, though nowadays I occasionally participate in workshops for the practice and comradery. Its so fun to learn new things and meet other artists!
Being an indiscriminate animal lover, I started feeling out a potential fine art career some years back by painting pet portraits for coworkers, friends, and family. The positive response and my growing passion kept me going. I have now expanded my artistic vocabulary to include still life, landscape, wildlife, and portraiture as well. My mediums of choice are Acrylic, Watercolor, and Oils. Though Oils have become a serious favorite.
Since my late teens, the idea of being a self-sustaining professional artist has never left my mind. In truth, I love painting so much that any time and energy I spent in other fields felt wrong, like wasting precious days of my life. I cant stay away. Now I am painting full time with full determination to make this passion work as a career, one way or another. I currently sell my original art, take commissions, create digital content on various platforms, and teach workshops, as well as working as studio assistant to the great Todd Bonita. This is the greatest challenge I’ve ever faced and I’ve never been happier.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to get to know me. Be a Dream Chaser, and have a Beautiful Day!”
