Juanita Rogers was born near Montgomery, Alabama, and is a Outsider Artist. She began "making mud" as a child. Using cast-off materials and objects natural to her surroundings such as mule and cow bones, fossil shells, and mud she dug from the woods near her house, her primitive existence was reflected in her work. Anton Haardt discovered and promoted Ms. Roger's work first in 1981. Her work gradually became included in many collections such as the Outsider Archives in London and L'Aracne Museum in Paris. She was the first American woman to be included in the Art Brut Museum of Lausanne, Switzerland.
