Russell Perry lives with his wife, Joanne, at the Christian Community of En Hakkore. Brought here by the grace of God in 2014, it has become home. 

This site was once a TB Sanatorium and then a youth detention facility: it has many buildings and facilities, and includes a farm of 120 acres. Today, the Bradfield family - David and Margaret, Anthony and Sarah - own the place. Here, they have a ministry of rest, retreat and restoration. It is a place of great beauty, deep rooted peace, and tangible presence of a loving God.

Russell has a large studio/framing room at En Hakkore, and displays his work on-site in the newly opened (Feb 2017) Selah Gallery.

Please select ONE of the following: (I understand I can change option later)
All submissions/subsequent emails will be acknowledged/answered as soon as is practicable.


As new works leap from the easel, you can be one of the first to be informed. An image, its particulars and price are sent in an email address supplied by you. This can be of real advantage to you. Here's why.

TEN days after completion, the paintings are prepped for gallery display complete with carefully selected conservation quality materials and quality framing workmanship. They are then sold as FRAMED WORKS.
If you take an instant liking to a painting and want to purchase it unframed, you can get in touch before those TEN days are up to exercise that option.

The Contact Group also contains information about changes to the web site, any changes to the way WIW operates, and notes about whatever Christian faith experiences have been part of painting for me since the previous mail-out.

Of course, you might like to join the group for no other reason than curiosity about what the brushes are turning out. Why not?
