Encouraging the Arts with Illustrator, Jensen Russell

Maggie hosts an hour of celebrating the arts with special guest artist and illustrator, Jensen Russell. Jensen illustrated the new children’s picture book authored by Cynthia Brian, No Barnyard Bullies and will be illustrating forthcoming books in the series, Stella Bella’s Barnyard Adventures. ( She says she has always been an artist beginning as a little girl doodling and encourages teens to pursue creative endeavors. After high school she took a gap year before deciding to attend art school at SCAD to follow her artistic passion. Being authentic, original, and using vivid colors are critical to her success. Based on characters in No Barnyard Bullies, Jensen created NFT art that is available through the StarStyle NFT Community. (

Sharanya, the reporter for the Scribble which is focused on encouraging teens to be more interested in literature, shares different forms of literature including spoken word poetry and instapoetry. Nerd Extraordinaire Keerthi, continues the use of humor to encourage art forms through painting story. She discusses three of her favorite books that share the immortality of art.

Jensen Russell: Illustrator


Jensen Russel, Illustrator

Jensen is an illustrator based out of Savannah, Georgia. No Barnyard Bullies by Cynthia Brian is the first children’s picture book she has illustrated. She is currently finishing her last year as a student at Savannah College of Art and Design working towards a BFA in Illustration with a concentration in Publication. She currently works within children's book illustration and editorial/commercial freelance. She has always had a taste for the strange and unusual and strives to incorporate this into her art in a way that is comforting and touches upon inner-child healing. Her goal in my art is to exaggerate the human experience and encourage others to feel emotions all the way through.
