Welcome to Fran Russell Art

I am a landscape artist living in the Kent Weald. I paint in oils, en plein air.

My paintings are inspired by the beautiful countryside and coastline around West Kent and East Sussex near where we live. I love working on location with my subject live and in front of me. It is challenging and sometimes frustrating but above all it is inspirational and totally addictive. Experiencing nature whilst trying to capture 'that moment' brings me a heightened awareness of sights and sounds. My aim is to allow my paintings to portray my personal interpretation - hopefully giving the viewer a new perspective.
