Emily Rogers is a British painter, born in Oxford in 1996.


Emily began her art training at Oxford Brookes University, where she undertook an Art Foundation year. Emily then went on to study Fine Art at Leeds Arts University for three years, graduating in 2018. 

Wanting to develop her painting skills further, Emily moved to Florence, Italy, and began studying at Charles H Cecil Studios. Here, she learnt the old masters technique of 'sight-size', whereby the sitter is observed from a distance and painted from life, to scale and under natural light. 

This technique was derived from masters' such as Van Dyck, Velásquez and Sargent. 


Emily is still living in Florence and studying at Charles H Cecil Studios, where she now teaches and continues to practise and advance her painting skills.
