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 has been used by masters since the 17th century while its origins lie in the practice of Titian, Van Dyck and Velasquez.
Emily now lives and works in London but travels back to Florence periodically to instruct at the studio.
