I love custom pieces.  Pet portraits, family names, sentimental quotes, bottle openers.  Previous custom work can be found on my website and instagram, requests taken through mainly instagram and my website as well.  

There was an interview on WGN a few times!

As an artist, Russel Scott ‘The Sunsmith’ harnesses the power of nature to create his artwork and decor. Using a magnifying glass to focus the sun's rays from over 92 million miles away, he carefully burns lines and shapes into the wood, creating a unique and permanent image that captures the raw energy of the natural world.

Each piece of wood he works with is like a blank canvas, waiting to be transformed into a work of art. With his magnifying glass in hand, he explores the infinite possibilities of light and shadow, using the sun's rays to bring his designs and drawings to life.

For him, this process is a meditation on the delicate balance between light and darkness, creation and destruction, beauty and decay. By harnessing the power of the sun, He is reminded of the immense power of nature and our place within it.

Ultimately, his hope is that his work inspires others to connect with the natural world and to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day, even in the most unexpected places. Whether hung on a wall or displayed on a shelf, each piece is a reminder of the raw and untamed power of nature, and the beauty that can be found when we take the time to see it.
