Roger Blanchard has been an automotive artist for over 20 years, the result of a lifelong love of cars, arts and craft.
“I have been honing my skills since grade school when drawing cars sometimes replaced the math I was supposed to be doing!” says Roger. His interest came from magazines like Rod and Custom and Hot Rod.
His creativity led to an early career as an artisan in silver and enamel before returning to watercolors. Blanchard’s focus on automotive art came through his involvement in sportscar racing. “I’m always inspired by good design and the flawless hand fabrication that goes into many racecars.” Light, reflections and a high degree of realism characterize his artwork.
Featured in Road & Track, Automobile Quarterly, and Automobile magazines, this award-winning artist has created poster art for many concours d’elegance and racing events. A past president of the National Automotive Artists Association, Blanchard’s paintings now hang in many corporate and private collections in the Americas and Europe.
“My passion is to capture reflections in bodywork or a moment in time. Cars have always been a special part of my life. I like to share that through my artwork.”
