Russell Erickson creates heavily textured floral, ocean and urban scenes. His paintings feature 3D flowers and other items he handcrafts from cotton and oriental silk paper. Using watercolor, ink, oil and acrylic paint, Russell paints the flowers and other elements with his contemporary impressionistic style to create exuberant fine art.
Situated in softly lit environments, the 3D impact of his paintings is most apparent.
Russell received his BFA from the University of Illinois before studying printmaking at the University of Austria in Salzburg.
