Justin T. Worrell is a Virginia-based Tonalist landscape artist. An oil painter, Justin applies paint thinly and uses a dry brush technique to create dreamlike, atmospheric, and emotionally charged images forming what he refers to as compromise between the temporal and eternal.
Justin’s interest in art began early in his life. He fondly recalls sitting beside his grandmother in her home studio asking questions and observing the craft firsthand. Largely painting as a hobby, and when time would allow, Justin began more formal training as an oil painter around 2014. At this time, he began studying at the Art League in Alexandria, VA with local artists under the tutelage of Mike Francis. He has also attended many workshops from artists he admires, such as Dennis Sheehan.
Justin's work can be viewed in Charleston, SC and Alexandria, VA with Principle Gallery as well as in Birmingham, AL with ALKMY. He is proud to be a Signature Artist with the American Tonalist Society; a member of the Oil Painters of America; and an Exhibiting Member with the Art League. His work has been collected regionally, nationally, and internationally.
Aside from art, Justin deeply enjoys Seattle Seahawk football, anything having to do with French history and culture, and collects original comic book art and contemporary figurative fine art. He also loves Scotch! He currently resides in Springfield, VA with his wife Janessa, their two children Arden and Turner, dog Pinot, and cat Sadie.
