Self Portrait of the Architect at Work 2023

Renowned Wellington architect Roger Walker is getting his family home ready for sale.  Always a quirky optimist, he has decided farewell this award-winning design by holding an exhibition of paintings.  Walker began painting during the COVID lockdown and held his first exhibition in Wellington in 2021. 

“By having the exhibition in a home I designed, I’m combining my lifelong love of architecture with my new passion for painting.  I can’t wait to show them both off.

“I’ve recently had the house painted back to its original colours – bright green and pink.  It’s a good match for the colours I use in my paintings.  Joy all over.”
