Russell Steinert and I met in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1990, Russell a painter and me a sculptor/printmaker. Like many other artist pioneers of the neighborhood, we set forth on a creative life together. In 2012, after years operating design and retail businesses and raising two daughters, we launched this website, Russell Janis. Our focus is making, collaborating on and exhibiting art and design projects from the artist’s experience and point-of-view. Everything we feature: unique pieces, limited editions we publish, originate here in the Russell Janis live/work studio and exhibit space located in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn near the Graham Ave stop on the L train. Please follow our going-ons through this website, our Instagram or Twitter feed, or simply stop by to be inspired. Hope to see you here! — Janis Stemmermann
