K. JOANN RUSSELL ~ VISUAL ARTIST
She works in more than one
medium for the creativity and spontaneity it gives her. Landscapes rather than flowers were her principal subject matter until an art professor suggested she paint everything in her backyard! Flowers in strong colors and design were the result.
Her paintings of
horses, cattle, and rural scenes flow from her family's ranch life experiences in California and southern Oregon. She also occasionally paints ocean and water scenes for their tranquility and constant change.

Living close to the waters of Puget Sound in Washington
State and visiting Oregon
beaches or southern Oregon mountain valleys provides sources for her seascapes
and rural landscape paintings.
Her strong sense of design and
imagery as visual words attracted her to the sunflower. She thoroughly enjoys painting
sunflowers. She had never painted sunflowers nor considered painting them until one year Blue Jay birds planted the seeds in her yard. She didn't even have a bird feeder to supply the seeds, and the birds hadn't voluntarily planted
sunflowers in previous
years. This experience
became the inspiration for all of her art.
Joann appreciates the collectors of her art and their comments about how it affects them. Using her experience in interior design, she helps people to color coordinate their decorating plans and to express their individuality with choices of unique pieces of art.
In addition to
the original paintings and signed prints available on this website, art collectors of her work can
for framed or unframed prints,
gallery wrap canvases and greeting card reproductions
of her original
colorful paintings. Additional venues for her art are listed on the links page.
