Russ Cox was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up on a saltwater farm on the rural coast of Maine and in Washington.  Early immersion in nature and art created an inability to separate the two - constantly questioning how to capture nature when in Maine, and then spending hours at the National Gallery of Art and Smithsonian analyzing how artists rendered experience and place, and which works successfully created a feeling of connection for the viewer.  Over time, the intimate associations made and the sentient connection art can create, became key to what he would strive to achieve in his own work.
