Russ Docken

The dedication and enthusiasm Russ Docken incorporates into his art is more than a catchy colloquialism. Rather, they are critical aspects he has used to achieve his goals. The ability to project these highly animated, personal qualities and have them merge on canvas is a skill this North Dakota native has been honing for a lifetime.   It began when North Dakota State University offered Docken a full athletic scholarship. If he wanted to continue his education, tireless training and sacrifice were not optional–but the rewards were great! At NDSU, Docken took the challenge and became a nationally ranked athlete and a three-time NCAA champion in Track and Field. Realizing he was the only one who could make his dreams into reality, he analyzed his efforts in achieving his athletic goals, and carried the valuable lesson of discipline to his art.
