About Ingrid Russell
I am a teacher and artist living and working in The Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. I have been painting for 12 years. I am working mainly in acrylics, but have worked in oils, pastels and water colours. My art has been moving in a more abstract direction, and I enjoy working with colour and texture. My works are represented in private collections in Australia and Europe. I am mainly self-taught, but have participated in numerous workshops over the years. I am currently studying for degrees in Fine Art and Visual Culture. My exhibition in 2009 "Dreaming" was held at The Event Horizon Gallery in Katoomba. I have written and illustrated a children's book, "Beauty in the Woods", available through myself and www.blurb.com.
