WELCOME. ROUHI AT RUSSELL GALLERY 10th to 26th OCTOBER 2019.I will be showing my paintings of Cornwall, Venice, New Forest and London.

An artist who loves painting in oil, pastels and print making. I paint outside and brave all types of weather, taking inspiration from all around but particularly love studying skies, whether stormy and threatening or sunny and optimistic. In my work, I try to capture a moment in time at its liveliest and most vibrant and although predominately traditional in style, you'll find a contemporary touch to my work, be it in the colours used or the brushstrokes made.

I have a Diploma in Art and Design from Wimbledon School of Art, which has given me a good insight into all types of art, including abstract and traditional styles. I have also studied at Putney School Of Art for many years and have trained under NEAC artist Jason Bowyer.
