Julia Rogers Biography

 For Julia Rogers painting nature was almost inevitable. Her mother was an artist and her father a sportsman and wildlife enthusiast. Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay also had a strong influence on her career choice.  So it’s not surpassing that Julia began drawing landscapes and animals at a very young age.                                    

Over the years Julia has experimented with a variety of media and has developed the distinctive style we see today, primarily painting in oil.  She especially enjoys  painting wildlife in their natural habitat.        

Africa has been very inspirational in her work and has recently become a personal favorite.  A few years ago she traveled to the Okavango Delta to see the wildlife in its natural environment.  The northwest part of Botswana is where the Okavango river meets the sands of the Desert. These meandering waterways, lush wetlands and flat plains, are home to thousands of different species of plants, birds and animals.  Savuti was a unique opportunity to experience a totally different eco-system. It is one of the seven wonders of the world. The winter of 1997-98 Julia, with a group of artist friends, traveled to East Africa on a photographic safari to gather reference material for future paintings.  She calls it “the trip of her life”.  The combination of wildlife interactions and mother nature’s creation, El Nino, gave her incredibly unique experiences.

Julia’s paintings can be found in fine art galleries and in juried art shows across the U.S. including the Waterfowl Festival, Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Show, and the Southeastern Wildlife Festival.  As a member of the Society of Animal Artists, Julia has been selected to exhibit in numerous prestigious national exhibitions. 

Julia’s work is included in many important collections around the world including the Raymond James Financial collection. She was sponsored in a visit to Malilangwe, Zimbabwe, to paint and leave work for a museum. She was part of a three man exposition at the Hiram Blauvelt Museum, "Kalihari to Kilimanjaro". She is a member of the Society of Animal Artists and has been chosen for their annual exhibitions. She is a regular participant at Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Gilcrease Museum, Waterfowl Festival, Plainsmen Gallery, Wildlife and Western Art Show and Safari Club International, Reno.
