who's life and art have been nourished and inspired by time in wild places, works to express reverence for the mystery and beauty of the places he loves. The deep silence and deep peace of wild places are at the center of Rod’s work. “In my art, I try to flow, to capture the essence and spirit of that great flowing life, of struggle and silence and peace. I try to express the spirit and essence rather than the details which often distract.” He founded Heron Dance, an art and literary publication, in early 1995.
