About the instructor

Rogene Mañas 

Rogene Mañas retired from her international card company, PhotoTidings, in 2006 to focus on art-making. She studied at the University of Oregon and worked with numerous professional artists in the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, Italy and France in developing her skills. After becoming an accomplished plein-air landscape painter, she made a sudden departure in style and materials after spending winters in Mexico. Inspired by the allegorical nature of Latin American folk art, she shifted her focus from the external world to the internal one. Now as a contemporary folk artist, she makes art about her own thoughts and feelings, often combining nature images with human forms. In her book, Artful Paperclay, published by North Light Books in 2016, Rogene shares the unique and inventive paper clay and mixed media techniques that make her work stand out. She teaches workshops in Oregon and Mexico, and her work may be seen in galleries in Oregon, California and at her website, www.rogenemanas.com. In 2011, she was featured on Oregon Art Beat, a regional program on PBS showcasing Oregon Artists.
