Born in Stratford and brought up in Coventry, Roger Davies studied at Newport College of Art, Wales and the Royal College of Art, London. For the last twenty years Roger has specialised in large-scale watercolours and oil paintings of maritime subjects, noted for their carefully researched detail and atmospheric quality.
His original oil painting, 'The Big Five' was commissioned by the owner of the world's largest gaff-rigged superyacht 'Lulworth'. The painting, which depicts five of the most famous racing yachts from the 1920s' which included Lulworth, hangs as a centrepiece in Lulworth's sumptuously appointed saloon
His work is in private collections across Europe, Australia, Canada and USA.
