Susan W. Rood is a printmaker who works in linocut, monotype, and collage. She grew up in Northwest Connecticut and presently lives on the Rood family farm where she has her studio. Her work reflects her agricultural roots and its changing environment and includes images of animals and plants, that are tied together with a narrative thread. The surrounding landscape provides the comfort and courage to also create more abstract narrative images presented as views from within. There is a story happening inside each piece, just waiting to be explored.
Rood’s work has been included in national and international exhibitions and shown in many art galleries. She is a juried member of the Boston Printmakers, Zea Mays Printmaking located in Florence, MA and the National Association of Women Artists, New York, NY. Rood has a BFA from Hartford Art School and a MS in Art Education from Central Connecticut State University
