Alicia Rogerson is a Western Australian artist-illustrator inspired by dreams, fantasy, childhood and her imagination. She resides in Bridgetown on a hill beside a forest surrounded by birds, kangaroos and butterflies.
Primarily a figurative artist, Alicia tends to focus on solitary feminine figures with bold eyes, elaborate hair and the relationships they have to the world. Her paintings involved hidden symbols, meanings and references. She often incorporates text and is very fond of vintage book pages in her exploration of communication.
From 2007-2016 she painted under the psuedonym "Ali J". Now as her work evolves and grows she has chosen to paint under her real name.
Through her career, opportunities have been generous and Alicia has worked on private, commercial and community projects. Her client list is extensive including SONY/BMG, Penguin Randomhouse and The Australian Women’s Weekly. She has worked on a variety of projects including painting a fibreglass kangaroo, creating window installations, exhibiting in group and solo shows, illustrating CD’s, clothing, magazines and has her illustrations in a cookbook.
Her hope is that her art can make a connection to others and inspire them in some way.
