Randy Elrod is described by his friends as a Renaissance man. He is a dreamer, artist, writer, speaker and mentor. He enjoys traveling the world, the sacraments of food and wine and the culinary arts. He loves reading and favorite authors include Ayn Rand, Frederick Buechner, Madeline L’Engle and David McCullough.
He also enjoys painting nature, the female figure with watercolors and revels in the sensory overload of climbing America’s highest mountains. He navigated the Uganik River with only a tent and raft in grizzly country for a week in the wilderness of Kodiak Island, Alaska. He has completed twenty full marathons (yes, 26.2 miles each).
A self-taught artist, Randy began painting in the winter of 2002 at the age of forty-two. A lifelong love affair with graphite sketching provides the foundation for the watercolors and anchors his distinctive style. Originals and limited edition prints can be purchased.
He recently served as Artist-In-Residence for the prestigious O’More College of Design in Franklin, TN.
All profits benefit his charity, Creative Community, a 501(c)3 non-profit that teams world-class master teachers with young artists and covenes retreats for gifted artists and leaders, and conferences for creatives.
Elrod is available for a limited number of commissions each year. For more information e-mail: randyelrod (at) gmail (dot) com
He also gathers global creatives in Arts, Worship & Leadership together annually at the re:create Conference.
