About the Artist: Today, Russ Kramer is widely regarded to be among the world’s leading marine artists.

His works are unique and immediately recognizable, combining narrative, historical, figurative and maritime disciplines. Russ is a Fellow and past President of the 500-member American Society of Marine Artists and a member of the New York Yacht Club. Prior to turning to painting full-time in 2006, Russ spend three decades as a graphic designer, illustrator, journalist and creative executive. Russ lives and works in Mystic, CT, where his studio and gallery on West Main Street welcome guests year round.
