Russ ( bronze sculpture) specializes in "Veteran's Monuments". His heart is forever grateful to the men and women who have earned our freedom. Those special people from all walks of life ( this includes his Dad, Luther and his Brother, Luther Allen ) have given us the ability to choose our own journey in life. Russ's choice in life is to utilize his talents to remind, unify, and give thanks. His other subjects are western and wildlife do to his immense love of animals and his concern over our endangered environment. His goal in working with wildlife is to make people take a second look at the fragile world that surrounds them. Russ's nature photography also radiates with his appreciation for our ever changing environment. Russ feels that art should come from the dreams of one's own mind and is a gift that should be shared with others. Insight...can teach you a multitude, if your eyes are open.
