Local artist Debra Russell began a lifelong passion for the arts with her first U of U art class at the age of eight. It wasn’t until later in life that she would again return to the University to study for a Fine Arts degree.
She discovered her talent for painting when she had the opportunity to paint “en plein air” with the late LeConte Stewart. With Mr. Stewart’s encouragement, she began instruction with Helen Wiscombe in the late 80's. Motherhood happily interrupted her work for several years, but she was able to return to oil painting 12 years ago.
