Voted Golf Artist of the year in 2001 and 2002 by Golf Digest, Roche believes putting your heart and soul into a project makes it come alive. But for Roche, creating a successful series also involves intense research on all aspects of a piece. He studies thoroughly his subjects' lives and surroundings and has a unique sensitivity for detail and motif.
