B. 1997

Born in a rural farm town nestled in upstate New York, Russell's innate sense of creativity and appreciation for the beauty of nature was cultivated from the earliest moments of his childhood.

Embracing his nomadic spirit, Russell spends time between the stunning New England coast and the Adirondack region- embarking on breathtaking hikes, capturing mesmerizing photographs, and perpetually discovering fresh inspiration for his wondrous landscape creations. Russell's unique approach to capturing the dynamic and ever-changing moods of the New England coastline sets his work apart, blurring the boundary between sea and sky in a play of color and light. 

Russell’s use of a rich, nuanced palette evokes a sense of calm and contemplation, making each seascape a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's this ability to evoke emotion and convey tranquility through his work that endears Russell’s work to viewers. 

Emanating an ethereal and atmospheric quality, Russell's works possess an enchanting allure, as he expertly focuses on the delicate yet profound instances of natural phenomena that often go unnoticed. Russell aims to transmute his myriad of travels and his perception of nature's marvels into their most harmonious and serene form on canvas. It is in his peacefully captivating seascapes that he succeeds in seizing those fleeting moments and spaces that seem to exist solely within the realm of dreams, leaving the viewer with an otherworldly sense of awe and wonder.

In a world that often feels chaotic, Russell's atmospheric works offer a haven of peace and beauty. His dedication to capturing the serene and majestic nature of the New England coast encourages us to pause, reflect, and connect to the world around us.

Russell’s work has been collected around the world and can be found in several representing galleries across the US. 

It all begins out in nature.

Having grown up in Upstate New York and around the New England Area, my artistic journey has been deeply influenced by the natural beauty that surrounds me. From the rolling hills to the majestic mountains, lakes, and shores, I have found endless inspiration in the landscapes of my home. My love for travel has taken me to breathtaking destinations around the country, allowing me to capture and translate diverse environments.

My artistic approach is focused on creating landscapes that evoke a sense of atmosphere and ethereality. Through the use of vibrant colors, subtle textures, and a delicate balance between light and shadow, I aim to transport viewers to a dreamlike realm where nature takes center stage. I hope to spark an emotional connection and a moment of tranquility for those who engage with my artwork.
