Inspired by life, informed by science, enthralled by beauty – it all comes together in the exquisite bronze figures Rodd creates. Beautiful to look at, his creations also radiate warmth, feeling, motion and intelligence that he, somehow, has managed to breathe into them.
Rodd grew up in a small town in central Oregon with a doctor for a father. He earned a Fine Arts Degree from Oregon State University and later, a Master of Fine Arts in bio-medical communications at the Texas HealthScience Center. He became a medical illustrator and was twice honored with awards from the Association of Medical Illustrators. Rodd decided he wanted to follow another path and become a sculptor. When he turned his hand to clay, his profound knowledge of anatomy, art, science and mathematics all merged and resulted in the creation of figures of exquisite anatomical accuracy and beauty.
Rodd’s limited edition bronzes can be found in fine art collections all across the United States and abroad.
