Roger Bansemer has painted the sea—its people, its ships, its shores, and its lighthouses—all his life. After graduating from the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, and serving in the Navy, he built a unique home and studio/gallery in Clearwater, Florida. His paintings cover a wide spectrum of subjects, from his early abstract works to his present-day representations of landscapes, shorebirds, wildlife, beach scenes, nautical themes, and North American lighthouses.

Roger’s work has appeared in many magazines, including Forbes, Smithsonian, and American Artist and has been featured on the Today Show.
