About Russell Honeyman

I use all media to explore my identity in the universe. I paint and draw from life (directly and using photography) to meditate on connectedness of nature, body and mind. Thus, I paint landscape and seas, body, figure and portraits. I interpret what I see in realist, figurative and impressionist styles. I'm mostly self-taught. I've been drawing from life in pastels, pencils and charcoal since my teens. My parents were both artists and gave me a good start. In 2014 I completed a foundation in art at City College Brighton. I've been painting since 2007, and have been involved in artists groups in Manchester, Zimbabwe and Brighton. I'm a dad and I live in Brighton.
