I am a professional Artist and represented by the top Galleries, Museums, and Corporate Collections in the United States. I am also a Commercial Artist specializing in product licensing art with over 34 products in the market with retailers such as Walmart, Target, Ross, and Tuesday Mornings. I also teach Painting at all levels both in person and online workshops. I also provide Career and Marketing Classes for Artist who are interested in developing their professional careers.
I love both painting and teaching and have been a professional Art Educator for 25 years. Many of my students have become life-long friends and it is a joy for me to see their work and careers flourish from what I have been able to share with them.

Russ is talented and is very detailed in his teachings. I still have a long way to go as an art artist, but my work has improved with his lessons.
I will assess both where your current drawing and painting skills are and where you would like to be. We will also discuss the painting style you would like to master and whether you are interested in painting for leisure or as a profession and then create a program based on your goals.
I also have created online painting courses that will help you develop and refine your skills as an artist and teach you how to create dynamic, marketable paintings that are highly desirable and sellable.
