Works by Tom Russell

Tom Russell is a renowned musician and painter whose work reflects both a life as a world traveler and his years spent immersing himself in the culture of the desert Southwest. Born in Los Angeles in 1950, he graduated from the University of California with a Masters Degree in Criminology and taught school for a year in Nigeria during the Biafran War. He lived in Spain, then relocated to Vancouver, B.C. where he started at the bottom of the music business, playing in the strip bars along Skid Row. He has since lived in Austin, San Francisco, New York, El Paso, and Santa Fe.
 He now resides back in Texas.
