The Artist - Roger Pyke

Roger Pyke is a self-taught painter born on a rural farm near Launceston in Cornwall.  With a career background in the transport industry, extensive travel across the USA and the British Isles, a Cornish mining ancestry and subsequent historical research studies/publications, Roger creates paintings that feel nostalgic, multi-textured and evocative within each landscape or architectural subject, bringing a twist of movement and a shimmer of light to his canvas. In the last six years, Roger has been disabled and primarily housebound by severe ME/CFS, so his style has evolved to enable painting for a few hours each week.  20% of all sales profits are donated to the charity Invest in ME Research (IIMER) that is pioneering biomedical research into this disease.  Roger has sold work through Drawn to the Valley Artists' Collective exhibitions and to private collectors in Sussex, Cheshire and Cornwall, with his local heritage paintings currently displayed at Zebediahs Gallery in Launceston.  One of these paintings was inspired by the exquisite view of a soothing stream on a visit to the beautiful Ardnamurchan peninsula in the Scottish Highlands.
