Roger Hale was born in Farnborough, England, on July 24, 1943. After leaving public school armed with diplomas proving a strong bias to the right side of the brain, he joined the Farnham Academy of Fine Arts in Surrey. Besides following courses in painting, sculpture and lithography, Hale created his own portfolio of graphic design. He held a number of creative and management positions at three of the worlds most reputable agencies in London, Brussels and Amsterdam before starting his own agency in this last city under the name of Hale & Friends. In 1991 Hale took the almost unprecedented step of closing his agency in midstream and returning to his first love— painting. He has exhibited in the USA, Europe and Brazil, where he now lives.
