Rodney is an artist that who has also been an educator, arts advocate, and entrepreneur. Born and raised in Colorado, he has lived in places as diverse as Breckenridge, San Francisco, Santa Fe and Sedona but would often return to family in the Rocky Mountains. His art career has included: gallery owner, bronze foundry worker, teacher, non-profit arts administrator, curator, preparator and jewelry designer. As an artist his past work focused on mixed media sculpture, jewelry and metal smithing. He has had solo exhibitions in photography, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and most recently, painting.
