Russell was born in Windsor, Berkshire in 1966. He relocated to Cornwall as a young boy, when his family moved there in the early seventies. The move to Cornwall is something he has never regretted.
On leaving school at 16 Russell started work at the nearby Naval Dockyard, serving his time as an apprentice
Painting began as a hobby and has developed from there into something that brings Russell great pleasure and satisfaction on a personal level. He is completely self taught, developing his skills through much practice, patience and dogged perseverance.
Russel now lives in South East Cornwall, with his wife Natalie, daughter Eleanor, son in law and grandchild. Eleanor, as a young child, was frequently coerced in to going to the beach in all weathers to go shell seeking or rock pooling to provide material to work from, as much as to keep her amused.
His style of painting has gone from strength to strength with each passing year, and he has gained a reputation for his ability in capturing the beauty of the Cornish coast and in particular the coast and countryside around the Rame Peninsula - an often overlooked corner of Cornwall.
The Panache Gallery has been working with Russell for many years and delights in receiving his latest works and offering them to our clients. New for 2021 will be a selection of prints from this popular artist.
