nORM cAMPBELL, sitka

Oregon-born Norman Campbell moved to Southeast Alaska in 1982. Alaska has been the major source of inspiration for his work since his arrival. Its land, its trees, and its spirit have been a constant and abiding wellspring of ideas and subjects. Campbell works primarily with pen and ink on paper. He considers his work to be invented landscape and uses it to speak about his concerns, his vision, and his loves. He makes his home in Sitka, Alaska.

Norm was our illustrator and mapmaker for Ed Ricketts from Cannery Row to Sitka, Alaska and the illustrator of 100 Poems of Spring.

Norm's art is represented to the trade through Taku Graphics, Juneau, Alaska.
