Byron Birdsall was one of Alaska’s most renowned artists. His paintings feature brilliant landscapes, as well as uniquely Alaskan images such as puffins, eagles, and fishing boats. Birdsall had remarkable range, moving easily between portraits and landscapes, watercolor and oils. His paintings were often inspired by his international travels.
Best known for the variety and drama of his Alaskan landscapes, Birdsall’s unique ability to capture light is evident in all of his paintings. Besides landscapes, Birdsall produced florals, still-lifes, puffins, and period pieces, nostalgic renderings of historic Alaskan scenes. A prolific and immensely popular artist, Birdsall each year released several limited edition prints. Byron Birdsall and his family lived in Anchorage, and traveled extensively around Alaska and around the world, generating inspiration for new artworks.
Birdsall passed away in late 2016. We are honored to continue his legacy and represent him and his work in Ketchikan.
