Rod Zullo,first and foremost, is an outdoorsman. Growing up, Rod, read everything Earnest Hemingway, Robert Ruark, and Zane Grey wrote. He started working on fishing boats at the age of 15, and got his Coast Guard Captains License at 18. Weather on the bridge or in the cockpit, Rod constantly absorbed ideas for his art. The Natural World inspires every aspect of Rod's life. Including painting, sculpting, writing, cooking, and producing television. After ten years on the ocean, Rod yearned for the mountains of Montana. After moving to Montana, Rod spent the next 13 years guiding fly fisherman on the Yellowstone, Madison, and Bighorn rivers in the spring and summer, then guiding hunters in the fall. Winters were spent in the studio, exploring the memories of the experiences that inspired him. It was in 2005 that Rod's decided to pursue his art full time. At the same time, Rod fell in love with television production which allowed him to travel to many of the world's most intriguing places. Places Hemingway, Ruark, and Grey explored. With clay, bronze, paint, video camera, and pen Rod describes the natural world. His sculptures are in the permanent collection of both Brookgreen Gardens(Pawley's Island, SC.), and The National Museum of Wildlife Art(Jackson, WY.), as well as many private collections around the world.
