Lilla is the founder of Lilla Rogers Studio, a visionary art agency that represents over three dozen artists from around the world and has sold art for products worth over $200 million. An accomplished illustrator herself, she has been in the business for over three decades. The Studio’s client list includes Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel, Chronicle, the New York Times, Blue Q, Godiva, Barneys New York, Warner Brothers, IKEA, Target, Paperchase, and hundreds more.
The Studio represents some of the most sought-after artists worldwide and has licensed their artwork on a huge variety of products, such as bathing suits, teacups, scrubs, bathmats, puzzles, piggybanks, clocks, paper lanterns, children’s books, wall décor, and much more. Lilla is a trusted mentor to internationally renowned artists and has taught throughout her career. She has lectured at venues such as ICON: the Illustration Conference, Printsource NY, the Creative Connection Event, art colleges and corporations, and is frequently interviewed for her expertise as an agent, trendsetter, and artist.
Lilla’s love for art inspired her to pursue a degree in fine art in San Francisco, a second degree in illustration, and launch a fruitful illustration career in New York City in the ’80s. But it was the entrepreneurial gene she inherited from her parents that led her into the agency business. Lilla has the extraordinary ability to recognize new artistic trends as well as technology developments that allow illustration to morph and take on a new life within the media revolution. Lilla’s book, I Just Like to Make Things, is a best-seller in ‘Business of Art’ on Amazon.

About the host, Miriam Schulman
In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Miriam Schulman, Chief Inspiration Officer of The Inspiration Place. I inspire art-lovers to reconnect with their creativity, learn new skills and techniques, and profit from their art. After witnessing the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Rejecting the starving artist myth, my paintings have been seen on NBC, published in art magazines & home décor books, and collected worldwide. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at schulmanart.com/freebies
