Anthony J Rudisill: National Parks America's Last Refuge
A. J. Rudisill, who was born in Philadelphia PA, describes himself as a self-taught artist. Inspired by John James Audubon, he began drawing wildlife as a child. While a teenager, he relocated to Southern New Jersey and became a commercial artist. Greatly influenced by the surrounding coastal marshes, he indulged his passion for painting wildlife scenes in his spare time and became adept at the portrayal of the abundant wildlife in the area, particularly birds. As a painter, he preferred gouache over traditional watercolor and oil. When he turned his hand to sculpture, he used his firsthand observation of birds, transferring his knowledge and keen attention to detail from one medium to another.
 
Today, Rudisill’s passion is painting landscapes and seascapes, influenced by his current surroundings and by his travels throughout the United States. Preferring to work in acrylics today, Rudisill’s paintings are of an exceptional quality, so realistic they invite the viewer to experience the scene as if they are standing on the beach, cliff or mountainside.
