I met Russell at an art gallery that he and a couple of  other fellows owned and operated in Navasota, Texas.  Through the years, I’ve run into Russell occasionally or read about his endeavors in newspapers.  He’s a good guy and quite an accomplished artist.


Russell Cushman is a graduate of Sam Houston State University.   He has worked over thirty years as a free lance artist, book illustrator, and wildlife and history muralist.  

Russell's favorite subjects are those relating to his Texas heritage, such as his thirty foot long Battle of Galveston diorama at Houston Baptist University and one of his recent sculptures, a life-sized Texas longhorn steer which greets tourists at Terminal D in Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport.  Russell works equally well in oils, watercolor, acrylics and sculpts in clay, bronze, epoxy and steel. 

“My life's work is the epitome of stiff-necked commitment and God's helpful intervention.  You might find it hard to believe that my college art professors rejected my sophomore portfolio and advised me to change my major from art to something else.”

“The Town Tamer,” a broze statue by Russell can currently be seen at the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame in Waco, Texas.

Russell recently completed a mural for the Blue Bell Creamery and a ten foot steel sculpture for Blinn College, both in in Brenham, Texas.
