Howard Rogers 1932 | Americam Figurative painter and sculptor
Howard Rogers is an american painter, illustrator and sculptor who specialised in drawing nude figures and cowboy scenes. Howard's career began in 1959. He emerged from the Art Center of Los Angeles and began a decade of work in Detroit illustrating for the auto industry. He didn't illustrate cars, but instead he illustrated the people who went into the cars. As the auto industry moved towards photography instead of illustrations for their advertisements, Howard headed to New York to work for publishing houses, advertisting agencies, and magazines. He did illustrations for McCall's, Good Housekeeping, Harlequin Romance novels, and W.S. George.
Eventually, Howard decided to take his art in a different direction. A move to Arizona in 1993 gave Howard the opportunity to design another home. The house is whimsical, open, and has plenty of natural light. Howard carved the front door himself and it's a fitting piece to welcome the lucky guest into his home. Much of the furniture in Rogers's home was hand-carved by Howard including gorgeous pieces in the dining room, master bedroom, and in his studio. The house brims with character and beautiful art. It is clear when taking in his surroundings, looking at his paintings and bronzes, and speaking with the man himself that he clearly loves what he does.
