Roger Sutherland was born in St. Boniface in 1951. In '89, he started painting wildlife and prairie landscapes. Overtime Roger's painting style evolved into abstract painting that allows him to enjoy the freedom in expressing concepts and emotion. During the 1980s he met several prairie artists that influenced and encouraged him such as Roger Lafreniere, Hubert Theroux, Guy St. Goddard, Peter Dumans, and Geno Mazze. Currently he is an abstract artist living in Winnipeg.
