The Art of Duward Campbell
Campbell is a native Texan, born and raised in the center of some of the best ranching and farming land in the country.
As an artist, the people of this region and the southwest have provided the lifeblood for Campbell’s work, as he has concentrated his painting and drawing efforts around the contemporary cowboy and rural life. Campbell never draws an image he has not “breathed on”; for he knows the people, the animals and the land he brings to his work. He gathers information for his work mostly in the Southwest; however his many friends and associates allow him to do research from coast to coast.
He strives for accuracy and detail of not only the physical, but spiritual aspects of the characters and land he loves. Campbell has been involved in creative activities most of his life, but became serious about drawing and painting during his junior high school years. At that time, his pencil and pen and ink drawings were shown by several galleries in Dallas and Houston. He continued these interests at Texas Tech University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1975.
