About

Our television series “Painting & Travel with Roger & Sarah Bansemer” began in early 2010 and within a year 176 PBS stations nationwide had picked up the show. Over the past year the series has aired over 6,000 times and we are currently working on our 10th season of shows. Our travels and filming has brought us all over the United States including Alaska as well as the Caribbean and Mexico.

Roger Bansemer
Roger’s prolific career as an artist covers a wide spectrum, from earlier abstract works to the present day representational paintings of landscapes, shorebirds, wildlife, beachscapes, and nautical themes.

He has eight published books featuring his paintings with forewords by author James A. Michener, artist James Rosenquist, and film maker James Cameron. Roger has been the guest of two expeditions to the Titanic wreck site, and is the first artist ever to have made paintings while in a three person submersible hovering over the bow of Titanic. His other adventures include logging over 700 flights as a hot-air balloonist.

Sarah Shurcliff Bansemer
Sarah studied music and drama at the Interlochen Center for the Arts and has always had an eye for beauty and a love of travel. She is co-producer of the series and narrates the travelogue part of each episode with her gentle voice and easy going style. Recently completed is her first children’s’ book, “What Teddy Likes”.
