Carmel Valley Local Fine Artist Deborah Russell

Process painting gives me the freedom to create with both color and texture. Layering in intense color with paper & fabric evokes an intimate conversation with the painted surface. A subconscious narrative unfolds as a visual story that engages viewers for a moment of reflection. The intention is a shared harmonious connection with our ever changing external and internal environments.

In my classes, I teach the unfolding of color, contrast, and line, as well as how to see the elements of a subject and how they correspond to the evolution of the design. Ultimately that brings forth an artist’s personal signature style in any medium.

Students in the studio, say it has become a sanctuary of camaraderie and inclusion. Out of this fellowship and collaboration, we become more comfortable with who we are as artists and can spread the joy of sharing our creativity. Please come by and see for yourself!
