Russ Voelker
“My life experiences were varied from an early age. Raised a “military brat,” three years in one location was exceptional. So, my impressions of life are derived from a myriad of faces, places, and adventures. After graduating from Utah State, I embarked on a path as an art director and marketing executive. Now, with my career tucked away in my younger past, I embrace art as a course of contentment. I take my visions and experiences from my life’s journey and blend them with a seasoned imagination and … well, to just have fun with a brush!”

Randy Marling
“Although I studied art in college, my practice as an artist kicked in the day I retired. As a mature adult, I have learned my craft through painting classes, workshops, and collaboration with artist friends. I am inspired by the outdoors and enjoy painting sights from the roadside and in the countryside. My hiking has provided me with a sense of color and values and I paint with my vision of what I’ve seen.”
