Alicia Rogerson Studio.jpg
 
 

Alicia Rogerson is a mixed media artist and illustrator.  She creates feminine, dreamy artworks with a touch of darkness and spirit.  Her signature style is painting figurative artworks and often layering her artwork backgrounds with vintage book pages.  She hides secret meanings and messages in all of her works.

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 but now is starting to include experiences of her three children.

Her artworks are multi layered and the incorporation of layering and text is an important part to her practice.  Her journey started in 2007 when she added artwork to an online store through Etsy and within days she had sold out.  Since then she has continued to create and share her artwork embracing all 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. 

The portraits she creates are of everyday people and she is inspired by strong female characters.She aims to create her artwork to empower and inspire others as well as using it as a conduit to communicate with the viewer.
