Conversations with Corry Rogers

Today we’d like to introduce you to Corry Rogers.

Hi Corry, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’ve been passionate about art since I was a child, but I didn’t pursue my talent as a career until recently. I was a Police Officer for four years and I resigned from the department in December 2020 because I was unhappy at work. I decided to become a full-time artist and work for myself. It’s been the best decision for me because I’m doing what I love and fulfilling my purpose.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It was very difficult for me to quit my job. I had a good salary and my wife was pregnant at the time. However, she supported my decision; Her support, as well as my unborn son, motivated me to move forward and I knew I was doing the right thing. Creating my website and learning how to manage my YouTube Channel was also very challenging, but I was determined to be successful.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m proud that I took a leap of faith and believed in myself to do what I love. I’m known for Modern Pop Art with a cartoonish style. My work consists of acrylic paint on canvas. My art is very bright and colorful, with bold outlines. How I execute my artwork with the concept, color choices, structure, and placement is unique to me. I decided to start a YouTube Channel to document my thinking and creative processes for others to see. My art is energetic and engaging. I’m proud when I have a vision and I see it come to life on canvas.

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
My wife deserves all the credit. She has always believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. She’s my biggest supporter. She helps me stay focused, reminds me of my goals, and encourages me to pursue my passion.
