As a rising star in the art world, Tim Rogerson
casts his artwork with a very evident energy and passion. Inspired by
the works of Edgar Degas and Malcolm Liepke, the North Carolina native
has embarked on an artistic journey that has taken him from Degas to Disney
to darling of the industry.
Born in Kissimmee, FL, Mr. Rogerson
was forced to move with his family to North Carolina at the age of four
because of family health concerns. His father, who at the time, was employed
by Walt Disney World as Show Director in charge of managing and maintaining
all of the performances in the park, made every day a magical adventure
for the future artist, even though they no longer had the safety umbrella
Mr. Rogerson grew up living the everyday
life of a kid, playing outside and “hanging out” with friends,
however, the artistic urge to create was always present, compelling him
to apply the pictures and images in his head to paper and canvas.
Every child has a dream. For Mr.
Rogerson, it was to be an artist as well as satisfying his desire to return
to his home-state; back to the magical kingdom from which he came. Of
course being surrounded by the whimsical images of Disney characters,
even after his family moved to North Carolina; his father was an avid
Disney collector and supporter, didn’t help curb his appetite for
the Sunshine State. However, it was these images that helped form some
of Mr. Rogerson’s style, which has begun to earn him critical acclaim.
