Willie Rodger (1930-2018) was a Scottish artist and printmaker, specializing in anecdotal prints made with linocuts and has enjoyed experimenting with innovative craft techniques.

His work has been described as contrasting a boldness and delicacy, together with a combination of tones of austerity and wit. Willie's strategic use of his medium exposes the maximum potential of it, whilst simultaneously maintaining an economic use of linocut.

"The prints may seem like a spontaneous, first time thing but in fact I go through hundreds of versions and sheets of paper editing, editing till I get it right."

Willie Rodger was born in Kirkintilloch in 1930, and graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1954. After working as an art teacher at Clydebank High School from 1968-87, he left teaching to be a full time artist. He has exhibited widely all over the UK and also abroad, in both solo and group shows, and has also done a large number of commissions of public graphic art.
