Roger Ricketts

Roger Ricketts — Mixed media

My name is Roger Ricketts and I was born in Wolverhampton in 1947. My love of art started from childhood. I would enjoy experimenting with different colours and shading. By my twenties, I was painting ‘stills’, which included fruit, bottles and animals. When I became a father in my thirties, my art took a back seat, but I would never lose my passion for it and in my forties, I picked up the brush once again when I was inspired after visiting a famous Scottish castle.

After moving to Redditch and finally retiring from my day job in my sixties, I started to experiment with different styles of painting including new scenes and landscapes – mountains, boats and the ocean. Recently, I have begun to use resin in my works, which I feel gives my art greater depth, allowing me to elaborate my designs even more by being able to add layers which bring it to life and create a 3D effect.

The art that I now create is broad and I enjoy painting different topics. I have no fear when trying something new – over the years, I have used many different mediums from oils to pebeo to resins. My grandson has designed and created a website for me, where I can display my artwork for people to browse online.

I have also recently started making coasters and keyrings from resin, which I display and sell along with my paintings in local exhibitions throughout the year. I am hopeful to continue experimenting with different types of art for many years to come, from my home “studio” in Redditch.
