Her work reflects her unique ability to capture the drama and intricacies of the natural world and the creatures that live in it.

Additionally, Russell has been commissioned to sculpt more than 35 life-size monuments, which have been installed in public and private locations. She also received much acclaimer her 15 life-size sculptures she completed for the Audubon Zoo.

Russell said that it is through her personal travels and experiences that she is able to bring such beauty and depth to her wild subjects. Her dedication to the study of her subjects has taken her to many wild and remote destinations, including Patagonia, Alaska and her undeniable favorite—Africa.

“I applaud Dallas Safari Club and the countless members and supporters of conservation of wildlife and wild places,” said Russell. “It is an honor to be involved with this organization and other conservation efforts who provide boots on the ground for anti-poaching and wildlife conservation.”

Russell’s auction items along with hundreds of others will be available for viewing soon on biggame.org.
