Bronwyn Russell is a Brisbane born clay and collage artist whose love in life is creating something unique and soul nourishing. 

From 2001 to 2003 she attended Tafe Queensland and completed practical art studies in Ceramics and Visual Arts. A calling to New Zealand arose in 2004, and it was there that she discovered something that would set her apart from her peers.  A new medium of expression that achieved all she could ask for:  Teabags.  Along side her love of clay, using teabags allowed the desired result of texture, colour and transparency all in one hit. 

Bronwyn’s work embodies a tribal earthy feel and somewhat spiritual essence as each piece talks of a different story in her life. Whether 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional, whether clay or teabags, her intent is to create a visual experience that allows the viewer to connect to their own inner space of being, igniting in them the creative flame that nourishes their soul.
