Roger Allen is a professional artist working in watercolour and oils.  His closely observed paintings are renowned in Derbyshire, the landscape of which provides him with much of his inspiration. 

The tradition of the Romantic movement in British landscape painting may be discerned in his work, but a long association with farming informs an awareness that this is a working landscape, realism as opposed to idealism.  His more unusual narrative work frequently confronts notions of mortality and the passage of time.

Roger's work has been selected for exhibition at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition, the Royal Watercolour Society and has won the Derbyshire Open Watercolour Prize on three occasions, as well as many other awards.
