Artist Statement: Though trained as a painter, I work in a variety of media as a visual artist, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, and collage. I earned an MFA in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from Georgia State University, and a BFA in Drawing and Painting from the University of Georgia, studying at the Art Institute of Atlanta, and California College of Arts and Crafts along the way. I'm currently Associate Professor of Art with tenure at Georgia Highlands College. https://russellcookart.com/galleries/652336/images
