English maritime painter and wood craftsman, Howard Rogers, likes to think of his simple Eastport, Maryland workshop as "a little bit of British Empire in Annapolis." Named "The Raven" in honor of the majestic birds that traditionally inhabit the Tower of London, his one-man business produces some of the area's finest marine art work. Memories of Howard Rogers go back some 20 years to lives lived on boats out by the old Trumpy yard in Eastport, now the ChartHouse restaurant. Howard brings to The Raven all of the skill and technique that he has acquired over the past 45 years. He has made innumerable custom pieces of furniture, with Old World charm and skill. Hand-rubbed finishes give each piece the depth and luster that the wood deserves. Picture frames, mirrors, plaques and signs show off his carving ability as well as his artistic sense of beauty and balance.
