Pamela Ruby Russell - Photographer Songwriter Writer

This award winning artist's about joy. She's performed and recorded with her bands, studied voice with Mark Baxter, as well as piano, writing and acting. Pianist Keith Jarrett invited her to his seminar 'On Spontaneity.' Honing her music skills nurtured her other big love, the camera. Her first mentor was NYC photographer Myron Ehrenberg. The seed of an artist grew as she sought honesty and truth in art.

Board Pres. of a local TV station, former Vice Chair of a local Dems Comm., years ago she organized her school's first Vietnam protest and exhibited her 'As The River Flows So Flows the Man,' a photo exposé of polluters. She traveled the Hudson River's entire coast from NY to NJ's Palisades and back up into NY. She also acted in two challenging plays, 'Chamber Music' as Pearl White, by Arthur Kopit and Giraudoux's 'The Madwoman of Chaillot,' such appropriate beginnings for a wild woman with the makings of a film up her sleeves!

Riding an elephant in a Mexican circus was but one of her adventures. At midnight she sang atop the Temple of Quetzalcóatl at the Sun Pyramid in Teotihuacán, Mexico. By dawn hundreds of encamped people awaiting a Mayan holy day honored her for cleansing the sacred site with her voice. Listen to her 'Avenue of Tears.' Reading Tarot cards in a Mexican cafe she learned enough Spanish to write 'Tengo Razon.' In the 70's she had a small P'town restaurant, 'Vital Vittles' and still loves to cook. While traveling, connecting old and new friends, she always has a camera. Her portraits, fine art landscapes and songs bring joy to clients and audiences alike.

"We're not strangers. Creating healing art is my work. Life's short. We're not always dealt easy hands. It's the playing of tough cards, with forgiveness, love and wisdom that moves us through time in profound, useful ways. What I've learned I share! That's how I live!" Pamela's dedicated her energy to these principles, in joy! Thank you.
