Sherrie Russ Levine

Artist Statement

 

Sherrie Russ-Levine was born and raised in Georgetown, South Carolina and attended Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, where she received her degree in graphic design and illustration. After graduating, she worked in advertising agencies and corporate art departments in Atlanta, Georgia for ten years before making Nashville, Tennessee her home. Since 1995 she has focused her energy on paintings in oil and has shown in galleries and juried shows throughout the United States.

Levine is an artist noted for her loose impressionist paintings filled with evocative light and color. Her works capture the mood or atmosphere of any subject with expressive brushwork and just enough details to invite you to take a closer look. She often travels to find new inspiration and paints from life when on location and in the studio.

Levine's paintings are gaining national recognition in private collections and painting competitions. Her painting "Captalizing on Sunshine" has become a part of the Tennessee State Museum's Permanent Collection. She has continued her studies of painting under the tutelage of renowned artists Barbara Flowers, CW Mundy, Lori Putnam, Scott Christensen, and Maggie Siner, whom are among the most influential in her work.
