  • Raney Rogers

    Raney Rogers has been living and painting professionally in the Blue Ridge Mountains for over twenty years.  Well-known in North Carolina and gaining national acclaim, Rogers has won numerous awards and exhibited her work in galleries around the world.  In addition to her formal art training, she has studied under Robert Bateman and Daniel Greene.  She has taught art in public schools and to private students.

    “Being an artist was not a choice for me.  I was drawn to the craft and only there find my true happiness.  Art, for me, is the result of the constant struggle –or flow – of translating soul feelings onto canvas or paper, and when given the opportunity, sharing the experience with others, and hopefully make a difference-.”
