Painter, born in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art, 1966–71, after which he lived in the Pentland Hills. Although Roberts’ work was abstract, in it he strove to find an equivalent for the harmony of nature around him. He had a solo exhibition at New 57 Gallery in Edinburgh in 1977; others included a show at Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1988, in which Four Seasons was the theme, and exhibitions at Francis Graham-Dixon Gallery, 1990 and 1992. Arts Council, Scottish Arts Council and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art hold his work.
