Alicia Rogerson is a mixed media artist and illustrator. Her work is figurative, feminine, dreamy and often multi layered with the incorporation of collage. Her mediums of choice are acrylic on wood or canvas, or watercolour on paper. She also likes to use pastels, charcoal, paint pens, ink, graphite and pencil. Extending her artwork beyond the physical form she will photograph or scan it onto a computer and digitally manipulate it to either reproduce onto products or create surface patterns.
Living in the rural countryside of Bridgetown, Western Australia, her art studio resides on a hill beside a forest. She is influenced by Japanese culture, Lowbrow/ Pop Surreal art, Fantasy and Books. At the start of her creative career she incorporated elements from her own childhood into her personal works but now that she has children of her own she is including theirs.
Her journey started in 2007 when she shared her art online and since then she has continued to create, evolve and embrace the large variety of opportunities that have come her way. Her work resides in collections worldwide and her commercial client list is growing, including Sony/BMG, Penguin Randomhouse, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Oxford University Press and Dolly Magazine.
She enjoys working on subjects that reflect life and has recently created a body of work based on Endangered Animals and incorporating more nature into the artworks. She likes to paint portraits of everyday people and is inspired by a strong female figures. Her aim is to create artwork that will empower and inspire others as well as using it as a conduit to communicate with the viewer.
Her hope is that her art can make a connection to others and inspire them in some way.
