Amira R.

Amira Rogers is a contemporary artist with a life-long passion for creating art in multiple mediums, who began exploring art at a very young age. Amira formerly studied art for the first time at the acclaimed Art’s High School in Newark, NJ, then went on to earn her Bachelor of Fine Art degree, with a minor in graphic design, from Seton Hall University. Amira considers herself an interactive artist working in various mediums (photography, glass, acrylic paint, pencil and marker to name a few). To Amira, art is incomplete without the engagement of the viewer. To add to the traditional art skills Amira has also ( Flameworking, Kiln forming/Mosaic and Glass Blowing skills). She creates glass mosaics as works of art that often double as functional items. Her art is influenced by music, nature and her everyday experiences. Amira was granted the opportunity to work with 3 different glass demos at the museum of glass in Tacoma Washington for the national Glass Art Society Conference in 2022. She was also one of the speakers for the community panel at the conference, speaking about her time teaching and making glass art in Newark NJ as a woman of color.
