A full-time artist and workshop leader from Kennebunk, Maine, and Princeton Junction, New Jersey, Russ is widely known for watercolors that capture the many moods of Coastal Maine and rural New Jersey. His work ranges from loose, impressionistic sketches to highly realistic drybrush paintings that echo a technique first mastered by Albrecht Durer nearly 500 years ago and later refined by Andrew Wyeth.
He holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Wagner College.
