Matthew Russ was born in Portland, Maine and raised in nearby Cape Elizabeth. He earned a B.A. from Colby College, majoring in studio art with a concentration in oil painting, and studying for one year at Crawford College of Art in Cork, Ireland. He lives with his wife KC in Waterville, where he maintains a studio on Main Street and works as a preparator at the Colby College Museum of Art and the Paul J. Schupf Art Center.


Matt celebrates Maine’s landscape in his paintings.  He paints from life, working outdoors in all seasons and often backpacking into remote locations. He favors protected lands, such as Maine State Parks, the Kennebec Highlands, the Morse Mountain Conservation Area, Maine Audubon sanctuaries, and islands along the Maine Island Trail.
