Roger K. Loveless

Roger Karl Loveless was born in 1957 in Utah. He grew up in a musical family that was very supportive of his early art efforts. He found that listening to music had a profound impact on the visual images in his mind and loved the challenge and fun of reproducing those as art.

He received his degree in illustration from Utah State University in 1983 and began painting for local book publishers in Salt Lake City. In 1986, Loveless and his family (he and wife Linda today have five children) moved to Los Angeles and began a national career painting for companies such as National Geographic, Miton Bradley, and Titanic Historical Society.

He joined a publisher (Hadley House Publishing) in 2001 and has his spiritual work reproduced as lithographic prints and distributed for a national market. He expanded his illustration career in 2003 by joining a design company (Axiom Design) as an in-house illustrator.

There he has learned to adapt to any needed art style to accomplish any given assignment.

Loveless feels that “art should be able to enter the heart through the eyes of the viewer to experience emotion not typically felt in everyday life. I love to participate in this process and bring more joy and meaning to my life and hopefully into the lives of others.“
