Russ Walker was born in Southern Oregon and was raised on a small farm in the famous Rogue River. From an early age, Russ was sketching and painting wildlife and the landscapes around his home. Artistic desire and a love for the wild country, together with observations of wildlife and their habits, guide Russ in his paintings. The inspiration from the mountains and wilderness, and living in the environment in which he paints is a major ingredient in his art. Russ married Alice Clark from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Together they have five sons and two daughters. Russ and Alice find great joy in their family and church.
This region has always been the home of an extra ordinary range of wildlife. Even as the world enters a new century the Pacific Northwest still finds a great many of its natural resources intact. There remain great tracts of wilderness, beautiful lakes, rivers and magnificent mountains providing a lifetime of inspiration and references.
A selection of awards, publications and distinctions for Russ include: the Phippen Museum Show – Prescott, AZ, Memorial Day weekend; and Death Valley Show – Furnace Creek Ranch, November each year.
