A Little About Fred
A fifth generation of professional artists, born March 6, 1949, Rothenbush knew his destiny at the age of 4 and began exhibiting at 13.
Fred's skills range from wildlife, hunting dogs, murals, portraits and a specialty called "Kids, doing their thing." He spends weeks in the wild each year and loves the time he spends with people (especially children). Art has always been Fred's life and he says he'll never get enough.
Rothenbush has hunted quail with President Jimmy Carter and has his works in the collections of four other Presidents and various entertainers including Elvis Presley, Porter Wagoner and Tennessee Ernie Ford among others. He has appeared on numerous TV hunting shows, talk shows and was invited to exhibit in Paris in 1983.
Fred does a rare work called "Cop Art" painting law enforcement personnel "doing their thing." The Florida Highway Patrol, The Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch are among some of the agencies dear to him. Fred was recently designated as an Honorary Deputy Sheriff for his hard work and dedication to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department.
Fred now exhibits one man shows and uses his works to raise funds for various Law Enforcement Benefit Funds, Ducks Unlimited, Quail Unlimited, Child Abuse Centers among others. He illustrated Gene Hill's book "Shotgunner's Notebook". Fred is a member of The Portrait Institute and is listed in the 1981-82 American Artists of Renown.
Fred says his greatest honor ... "is the debt I so greatly owe my Lord and Savior for the gifts He has allowed me to share with others. To Him I owe it all."
