BFA minor in Biology from Willamette University

SELECTED AWARDS:
2017 Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife – Upland Bird Stamp – Blue Grouse
2013 Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife – Habitat Stamp – Print with Kit Fox
First-ever Featured Artist at the prestigious Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Show.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
He’s hiked and camped in mountains and forests throughout the northwest U.S., Central America and East Africa. He knows the lakes and mountains as well as he knows the plains and deserts, not to mention almost all the creatures who live there, from the smallest bird to the largest elephant. And he will paint them on whatever size canvas suits them best. In addition to his peaceful views of animals in their natural habitats, he is also known for his paintings’ many different sizes and shapes—each chosen to best suit his perfectly balanced images of wildlife and wilderness. Rod Frederick has two adult children and is so excited that he has just become “Grandpa” for the first time.
