The Artist

 

International cricketer Jack Russell MBE has been a professional Artist for nearly 30 years. Self- taught, he decided to become a painter as a result of frustration at being stuck inside cricket pavilions when "rain stopped play".

Jack paints a wide range of subjects. From landscapes, wildlife, military, portraits and sport. His paintings hang in public and private collections worldwide, from the Tower of London to The Bradman Museum in Bowral Australia. Sittings for his portrait paintings have included HRH Duke of Edinburgh, HRH Duke of Kent, ten Field Marshals of the British Army, Sir Norman Wisdom, Eric Sykes, and Eric  Clapton.Sporting icons include Sir Bobby Charlton, Dickie Bird and Phil Taylor.

Jack's cricketing pictures are legendary. He spent over 20 years in the thick of cricketing action for both Gloucestershire and England. Whether it's a Test match or County match who could be more qualified to paint a cricketing scene? He knows the atmosphere and the technical detail of a cricket match inside out. After all, many of the cricket scenes he paints, he's in them!

 

The Cricketer

 

Jack Russell made his debut in first class cricket for Gloucestershire in 1981at the age of 17 when still at  school.  Famed for his eccentricities and floppy white sunhat he turned professional the following year  and played in 944 matches before retiring in 2004.  He made his England debut in 1987, playing in 94  Interntaional matches before retiring from the national team in 1998.

His first test century was scored against Australia in 1989 and in 1995 against South Africa he broke the  world record for dismissals in a test match.  His aggressive wicket keeping stood up to the stumps to fast  bowlers was the fulcrum of Gloucestershires'  golden period of success, winning 6 domestic one day  trophies in 5 years, including a triple trophy success in 2000.

Awarded MBE for services to cricket in HM Queen's Birthday Honours 1996.
