headshotRhod was born in Cadiz, Kentucky on January 26, 1948 and at the age of thirteen moved to Tucson in 1961.

After graduating from Sunnyside High he attended Northern Arizona University and later the University of Arizona studying studio arts.

After marrying Diane in 1968 he worked in construction for many years and then took a position as preparator at Tucson Museum of Art. He worked there for eleven years serving under the directorship Paul Piazza, Andy Maass, Roger Harlin and finally Lowel Adams. Rhod's museum career continued at the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona as exhibits designer/fabricator. He retired after 22 years in 2008.

In his spare time he was self-employed. His company Art Services of Tucson provides exhibition design, fabrication and installation for art galleries, museums and private and corporate collections. Through networking he has collaborated with many artist in the Tucson community. Although it had been in existence for almost a decade, in 1996 Rhod formalized the establishment of Tucson Artist Group with the help of nineteen other artist friends.

Rhod's art interests are varied. He works primarily paper sculpture but he also works in printing, painting, wood sculpture, and photography and paper illustration.

He and Paul Mirocha designed and published two pop-up books for Scientific America. He created paper illustrations for Susan Lowell's book "Boy with Paper Wings" which took a bronze award at a Publishers Guild in New York. Paul and Rhod designed and produced the art for stackable boxes for Southwestern Parks and Monuments and are still in publication.
