I am Ann, and my business name is ann.russell.art. I am based in the north west suburbs of brisbane and have many years experience as a practicing artist and as an arts educator. Over the years, I have helped many people realise their creative potential and develop their own art work as a hobby, profession and for relaxation.

I love to paint in watercolour and mixed media and also create surreal assemblage sculptures using glass, resin, polymer clay and found objects.

I am passionate about helping everyone find their visual language and believe that everyone can paint, draw and develop their own style. I have studied art and education to post graduate level and love to pass on what I have learned to others.

As a practicing artist, I have exhibited locally, interstate and overseas and have been selected as a finalist for a number of prestigious exhibitions.

Thanks Ann, you provided such a relaxed environment for us to learn. It was great you were happy to answer my plethora of questions and share knowledge of many media not just the days project…so generous.
I can’t wait to see when your workshop calendar for 2024 is up and running.

Ann is a very friendly, gentle and talented artist. Her lessons have been relaxed and informative. Ann has a nonjudgmental teaching style. She is always encouraging. Her instructions are easy to understand. I've really enjoyed improving my knowledge of using watercolours. I would be happy to take another class with Ann.

Such a great day spent learning new beautiful watercolour techniques in lovely company.
Ann is an amazing teacher who knows how to perfectly combine technical teachings with allowing the students to freely let their creativity and intuition organically flow.
Yummy morning tea and lunch were provided, all in the most stunning natural setting possible. Highly recommend without a doubt.
