The Featured artist for this month’s ArtStroll is Rodney Skenandore, Elk Chief who was born in Montana.  After serving in the Army in Europe, and later in Southeast Asia, he earned a BA in Engineering Design and Drafting from a design school in Denver.  He then worked for NASA.  He slowly developed his interest in art and has created many works in various media, including design, jewelry, wood carving, stone sculptures, furniture, music writing.  Since the late 1990’s he has concentrated more on the art and his task as a healer for Mother Earth, nature and humans, and as a spiritual teacher.  Rodney considers "all of life as an art, a way of being dedicated to the positive spirits of life and healing”.  Rodney returned to the United States in 2015 after living in the Harz Mountains in Germany.  He and wife, Gudrun, recently moved to Thermopolis and they look forward to being a part of the art community here. Rodney and Gudrun will be showing at Broadway Bygones.
