Biography:

I am happy to announce that I have just completed (with the help of my partner, Alison), what has been a lifelong ambition, a book. It is entitled 'Take the Long Way Home' www.rodholt.co.uk/journey/book and is an illustrated, biographical, memoir. It will be available in hardback in the new year (2012).

I trained at Rochdale College of Art and at the University of Northumbria.

Since 2004, I have been working full-time as an artist. My work has evolved over time and recent pieces are inspired and invigorated by the wildness and uncompromising nature of the Dark Peak landscape. I have incorporated his experiences of fell running around my home in Glossop, Derbyshire into some of the pictures.

However, my art also encompasses other themes. Perspective is a key element of composition: I love to find an unusual or unexpected point of view, which allows the richness and delicate intricacy of the foreground to shine through.

Whilst there is photographic quality to my work, the fine detail arises from the perfection of a technique combining ballpoint pen with watercolour pencil and the whole scene is brought into focus with equal depth and clarity.
