About MaryMary Rogers is a painter living in rural Lincolnshire. The inspiration for her work has always been a response to the natural world - most specifically, the horizon. She is working from the top of a lighthouse in Spurn Point as part of a residency that continues until November 2011. Her current work includes a series of paintings of the 'sky and everlasting sea' taken from 190 sketches of the lagoon of Aitutaki. From these sketches she has created paintings with oil on canvas.

Cook Islands, taken from 190 sketches made during the 14 weeks she spent there
