Roederick’s divine purpose in life is God’s expression through him: to impart life, messages of stability, and hope through visual images; to teach, reach and change lives.
Born in 1949 in Toledo, Ohio, Roederick’s talents surfaced early. He began painting at the tender age of four, then attended the Toledo Art Museum as a guest student at the age of nine. He studied Fine Arts and Illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio, where he honed his technical skills. He currently lives in Stone Mountain, Georgia with his wife, Sharron.
Roederick describes his artistic energy as “beyond inspiration”. He acknowledges that God anointed him with a unique talent—to be full of His spirit, ideas, and creativity. So strong is this inspiration that he stays on automatic drive, enabling him to effortlessly deliver that Spirit onto canvas. Roederick never experiences “artist block”, nor does he lack for ideas. Rather, he searches daily for more time to download that kaleidoscope of images and ideas stored in his mind. He states that ideas bombard him daily, that they are all around him, to the point of information overload. He feels it is his duty to sort through this vast stored knowledge and interpret its form, color, rhythm, and flow onto canvas.
