Steve Russell
Russell is an artist, storyteller, and dear friend of the Rockport Art Community. Whether scenes of the Texas Coast, Big Bend or Venice, his paintings are expressive and timeless. His history with the Art Association goes back many years, and was named the second Rockport Art Festival Poster Artist in 1994.

Russell's work is widely collected and sought after for its expressive and historical detail. He and his wife Sherol live in Rockport, where Russell continues to paint, cook, play music, and travel. His most recent solo exhibition in 2013 was a tour de force, with over 65 paintings done in just under a year. A video of Steve in the studio can be viewed by clicking here.
