Roger Beale AO - Canberra Australian Artist


Art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I gain great pleasure in creating it, sharing it and, with my wife of many years, collecting the works of others.

My art is very much in the Western tradition – my influences are broad, ranging from the Baroque through urban realists like Hopper, Smart, and Amor to intimists like Hammershoi and Euan Uglow and the painters of the sublime and transcendental such as Martin Johnson Heade and Caspar David Friedrich.

The main themes in my art - art and life studies, city life, interiors and flowers, portraits and landscapes and the sublime are all represented here.  My sketchbooks are as close as I have ever got to keeping a diary. They reflect a busy life - too much of it perhaps spent in conference rooms around the world until I moved to painting full time in 2014.

 I would warmly welcome enquiries or comments




My last show at Michael Yabsley's Wombat Hollow (in conjunction with Maunsell Wickes) set new price records for my work at $9000
